Recipe by Perogie Mollinga
I stole this one from a family member, It's super easy to make and so delicious. Steelhead is kind of a cross between salmon and trout. This recipe can easily be substituted with salmon, and can be done on the BBQ as well be sure to use foil and or a bakesheet. Leftovers make great sandwiches!

So Costco had brilliant red-orange farmed steelhead fillets for the same price as tilapia ...which did I snatch up? You betcha baby! Found this recipe & had to sub Lawry's for dill (DH HATES dill) & Old Bay (tast is too deeply linked to crab for us). Hellman's - absolutely! Errr - forgot the lemon...Used good old Canadian cooking method - broiled perfectly @ 8 minutes - crispy surface with just opaque center. Served with steamed rice, steamed asparagus & a quick lemon, sour ceam, garlic, onion & tomato relish. On the table in 35 minutes from hitting the door! Thank you Perogie Mollinga for great inspiration - we will do this again.
