Asian Glazed Planked Salmon w/ Brown Rice Pilaf
This simple recipe is perfect for a backyard barbecue with friends and family, as it will not take the cook away from the party for long.
And by using grill planks, you'll ensure moist fish while reducing the risk of overcooking.
To accompany this dish, we suggest sautéed sugar snap peas or broccolini, and either the Brown Rice Pilaf recipe below, or corn on the cob.
