Grilled Salmon with Garlic, Lemon, and Basil

Photo: Jan Smith

We found that fish cooks best on a nonstick grill pan with a dome-shaped lid, so the fish steams while it gets great grill marks. Serve with a tossed green salad and couscous.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1 tablespoon sauce)
