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.

This is a winner! We loved the flavors. I used the steelhead fillets from Costco. Next time, as another reviewer did, I'm going to bake instead of broil. Cannot wait to try on other type of fish.

This was too sour for my taste.
