1-2-3 Grilled Salmon for Two

I love salmon, but my husband doesn't. So I combined flavors I knew he liked to create this recipe, and now it's the only salmon recipe he will eat. It’s so easy and only requires a handful of ingredients. —Nicole Clayton, Prescott, Arizona

    Influenced by Ina Garten? This is a reduced fat, reduced flavor version of Garten’s Asian Gilled salmon. Healthy hacks are great, but please give credit to the origin of the flavors.

    Just the right kick without being too much. I thought it enhanced the taste of the salmon.
