Orange Grilled Salmon
This is a delicious orange grilled salmon recipe that I got from Echo. Now that the weather is getting warmer all I want to do is cook out on the grill, this is a sweet tangy dish that even your kids will love. Remember when cooking salmon, to avoid it tasting “fishy” you want to cook it within a few days of buying it (I prefer getting it from Costco), and do not freeze it!
