1792 Recipes: Perfectly Grilled Salmon

by Scott Wagner

Simple and delicious 

Warmer weather calls for lighter meals and grilled salmon is just the ticket. A healthy fish chock-full of the kind of omegas we all need, it’s filing, it’s fresh, and it’s good for the heart. Cook it outside and make the most of the spring weather. Serve it with your favorite side dish—grilled asparagus, mashed russets, a green salad—and feel good about having prepared something that won’t be cause for regret later on.
