Salmon is one of our favorite fish to eat, and it is a good thing since we usually have a freezer full! Living in the Pacific Northwest has its benefits, and fresh, world-class salmon is definitely one of them.

Our favorite way to cook salmon is on the grill, but most of these recipes can also be done in the oven if you doing have a grill handy.
