  2. Use 2 tbsp of the yogurt mixture to marinate salmon.

  4. Meanwhile, stir 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint and 1 Tbsp chopped scallion into the remaining yogurt mixture for sauce.

  6. Just before cooking, lightly oil grill rack by rubbing a piece of oil-soaked paper towel over surface (use tongs to hold paper towel).
