Salmon holds up to the heat without falling apart. It's special enough for company, still simple enough for weeknights. Looking for that "special something" dish to add to your entertaining repertoire? Try our Grilled Salmon with Charmoula, a Middle-Eastern spiced marinade or sauce. For something more traditional try one of our easy methods for planked salmon.
