Wonderful salmon recipe. Definite keeper.
We grilled it in foil so it wouldn't stick. Came out beautifully.
Just delicious. I have made it with salmon and other types of fish. I will make it again and again!
This was delicious and quick. Used my own pesto, had the pasta recipe 2 days later, that was fabulous too!
