You have a winner Bev. I used salmon steaks because it's what I had in the freezer and I made 2 servings. The fresh lime is wonderful with the garlic in it. I used the grilling pan indoors and the kitchen did get a bit smoky but the end result was worth it. An excellent dish that I would recommend to salmon lovers.
