Cedar Plank Salmon; John’s Fish Marinade
We have two recipes this week, including “John’s Salmon Marinade”: a simple, tasty grilled fish tip submitted by customer John Habel, which we like very much and thought we ought to share with our readers.
Here’s what John had to say about his recipe: “I always enjoy your products and in the last few years I have built a small cooking file on sockeye and halibut recipes. I was recently reading a cooking article on the mechanics of making good marinades for chicken, fish, etc. This is one I tried for grilled salmon using orange and basil.”
Thanks, John… we appreciate your taking the time to test this creation, and your impulse to share it with your fellow grilled-fish aficionados!
