This sounded like it was going to be a very tasty fish. I started with wild caught alaskan salmon (that also happened to be on sale this week). It looked beautiful and we were looking forward to a great meal with this. The marinade was good, very good. It smelled incredible before we even cooked it. Again, whether it was the recipe or the griller, the fish ended up sort of dry. It would be good to try again, baked, not grilled. We’re giving it 3★’s for now, hopefully the next time we can make some adjustments that will work better for us.
