This is a recipe, that even non-lovers of salmon devour. Left-overs, if there are any are great next day on a green salad.

    Place salmon in a zip-lock bag and pour in the marinade. Seal and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

    Remove salmon from marinade and let set for 10-15 minutes.
    Discard marinade!
  • 3Grill salmon without the lid until the fillets are opaque. 5-6 minutes depending on thickness.

    I buy skinless fillets at Sam's club. So no skin to remove. :-)
