Thanks to the grilling recipes submitted recently, I have been in heaven trying to decide what recipes to grill first. This salmon recipe came at the perfect moment – right about the time my husband was scratching his head wondering how to fix the salmon he had bought for Mother’s Day. I handed over this recipe that Nicole submitted (incidentally, two others submitted the same recipe, Marisa and Jodee, so you know it has to be a keeper!) and I am so glad her comment popped up when it did because honestly, this is some of the most delicious, tender, flavorful salmon we have ever prepared and eaten – AND it was extremely simple to prepare and grill. Oh, it was so fabulous, I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind and I completely stuffed myself on Mother’s Day because I couldn’t stop eating this. Yum! Thanks Nicole, Maris and Jodee!
