Salmon Grilled with Dijon Sauce
For a quick easy salmon marinade: Mix 2 parts plain yogurt with 1 part dijon mustard. Add a few pinches of dill. Spread the mixture on the salmon right before grilling. Save some extra sauce for passing.From: Ann Albers
Chef's comment: This is so simple and so delicious. We find that in NZ, Colemans French Mustard is just right. Fresh dill is a bit hard to find in NZ, but you can buy seeds and grow it yourself, the plant is similar to fennel. Dill is just right for salmon, somehow.

Grilled Salmon With Pineapple Marinade and Mango SalsaThis entree may be served hot or cold, and works equally well with tuna or swordfish. Serve with Mango Salsa.
Pineapple Marinade 1/4 cup Pineapple syrup 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1 teaspoon grated ginger root 1 small clove garlic, pressed 2 tablespoons rice wine, sherry, or sake 4 salmon fillets, about 6 ounces eachCombine the marinade ingredients. Coat the salmon with the marinade and let sit for 30 minutes. Grill the salmon until done to your liking, quite pink in the middle, California-style, or more well done if you prefer.
Note: Attention must be paid to the cooking of this tender, sweet fish. The coals should be burned rather low before placing the salmon on the grill. If the fire sizzles too hot, spray a mist of water on the coals. To test for doneness, "push" on the fish at its middle. The fish is cooked when it gently flakes away from your finger.
