Grilling SalmonI like this recipe because it only has two ingredients. It's great for a busy weeknight. Add a baked potato or sweet potato and tossed salad and the meal is complete.


  • 1 lb. salmon filets
  • 3/4 cup Kraft Light Asian Sesame Dressing, divided into 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup


Place salmon filets in a gallon size zipper seal bag. Pour 1/2 cup dressing over filets and turn the bag to coat the pieces well. Set aside 1/4 cup dressing for basting. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer. Drain, discarding marinade. Grill salmon over medium coals, skin side down, for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Baste occasionally with reserved dressing.

Servings: 4
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 15-20 Minutes

Source: I like to try different salad dressings as marinades, and this is one of my favorites.

Use your George Foreman grill, and it only takes 5 minutes. I season with a little garlic, onion powder, and some lemon pepper - delicious!

You can try this: Line some aluminum foil on a hot grill.
Coat the foil by spraying on some vegetable spray such as Pam to keep the fish from sticking to the foil. Lay the salmon on the foil and cook until done. The fish will flake easily when it's fully cooked. The skin can be removed once the salmon is cooked.


My husband and I love salmon!
