Grilled Salmon Steaks

This is a terrific way to fix salmon...and it's so easy to do. The marinade mellows the fish flavor, and the dill sauce is a wonderful complement. I once served this recipe to 12 people from the Pacific Northwest who declared it was the best salmon they'd ever eaten! -Deb Essen, Victor, Montana

    I did not like this recipe. The sauce itself is good but too sweet for me. I think the sauce would be good for another recipe but not this one. It overpowers the salmon taste so all you taste is the sauce. As for the marinade, I think it's useless, I tried the salmon with and without the sauce. Without the sauce, the salmon tasted kinda bland even after 2 hours of marinating so to me the marinade was useless, I should have just used salt & pepper. I was just expecting that after 2 hours of marinating, the salmon would have a bit of the marinade taste, but it didn't.

    Made this for my wife on the grill and she loved it. So much so that I'll be doing so again this weekend. Don't know if that's good or bad. Lol

    Holy smoke, we grilled this with hickory chips and every person at the table just melted in their seats! Never have we tasted anything so sensory! Save the sauce for chicken tomorrow. Now this is salmon!
