Read the Story Behind the Recipe

Tip #1

Grilling individual salmon fillets makes turning the fish much easier during grilling. Be sure to have a good, long-handled metal spatula to lift and turn each piece.

Tip #2

To toast sliced almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds onto ungreased shallow baking pan. Bake 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until golden brown.
