Sunday BBQ: Grilled Salmon With Citrus Sauce

Summer's packed with wedding receptions, pool parties, and other festive extravaganzas, which can be fun but a little exhausting, too. Tonight, take a midsummer breather by winding down the weekend with a meal made from fresh, wholesome ingredients.

Salmon tastes wonderful straight off the grill with a little bit of lemon, but take a few minutes to prepare an elegant citrus drizzle; its clean flavors quickly elevate the fish. Serve alongside grilled baby bok choy and steamed rice for a complete meal. Want the recipe? It's after the jump.

  3. Prepare salmon: Heat grill to medium-high. Rub 4 skinless salmon fillets (6 ounces each) with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander; season with coarse salt and ground pepper.
  4. Lightly oil grates; place salmon, skinned side up, on grill. Cover grill; cook 5 minutes. Turn fillets; cover, and cook until opaque throughout and flaky, about 4 minutes more. Serve salmon drizzled with citrus sauce.

Serves 4.
