Traditionally, Memorial Day weekend means the beginning of the grillin" season, particularly in the Northeast. We dig out the old barbecue grill from the back of the garage or the closet (if we live in apartments) and begin the annual ritual. So, this season, I'm starting off simple---as simple as grilled salmon. As I've noticed in other blogs, grilling fish, particularly fillets, the easiest of all procedures. And salmon works well. yeah, I know, the standbys are burgers, hot dogs, steaks, etc. But try some fish. You'll be surprised at its juicy, succulent texture. And, if per chance, you don't have a grill, you can still us the broiler--oven. Just broil the fish for 5-6 minutes, depending on thickness, or until easily flaked with a fork.
