Grilled Salmon

We love to cook on the grill at our house. I've used this flavorful salmon recipe several times and we always enjoy it. The parsley, rosemary and green onions help make the tender fillets a tempting main dish that looks impressive. -Monell Nuckols, Carpinteria, California

    My husband said this was the best fish he ever had! Will try the suggestion of extra dressing and make salmon salad!!

    As another rater stated, I also put the fillets on foil on the grill. Since I grow chives and had them on hand, I used them in place of the green onions, but that was the only ingredient change I made. Great recipe!

    I've been making this recipe since it was published in 1995. It is always a huge hit and so quick & easy to prepare.

    This recipe was simple and delicious! I followed the ingredients exactly,except I put the fillets on foil and made a rim around them. Then, grilled the salmon for about 20 minutes,it was perfect and moist! love this recipe!!!!

    Absolutely delicious! My children actually ate this meal and raved about it. I have been making extra marinade because my family loves to use it as a salad dressing.
