Grilling individual salmon fillet pieces makes turning the fish much easier during grilling. Be sure to have a good, long-handled metal spatula to lift and turn each piece.
To toast sliced almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds onto ungreased shallow baking pan. Bake, stirring occasionally, 5-8 minutes or until golden brown.
