I luvvv salmon, particularly NW Salmon, which I'd ordered online for this recipe. It was well utilized! I opted for olive oil (In support of DH's heart healthy diet) and it was superb. I left my salmon pretty pink in the middle - which on my grill meant about 9 minutes. I toasted my sesame seeds before serviing and thought it brought out the asian flare of the dish.
