This recipe is almost identical to one I was just going to post. A neighbor who went salmon fishing in Alaska gave us this recipe. Outrageously good---a must try! Takes about 10 minutes per inch of fish to grill or barbecue (turning only once). Be sure to close the cover/vents of your grill during at least part of the cooking to add smoky flavor. thanks for this keeper!
