Grilled Salmon with Tartar Sauce Recipe

Alice McGeoghegan from Devevan, California writes, “The original recipe for this dish is used every year at a Fourth of July barbecue in Fort Bragg, California. My husband, Bob, added some extra ingredients to come up with the best grilled salmon we've ever tasted.”

"I marinated the salmon for 1 hour instead of 30 min. I thought it was the best salmon I ever tasted, but my husband said it didn't really taste like salmon although he said it had good flavor."
