If you're unsure about cooking seafood, here's a foolproof way to make a delicious salmon dinner in a matter of minutes. Once upon a time, I wasn't sure about how to cook seafood, but after realizing it's about as easy as boiling water for a pot of pasta, I'm happy to make fish or shellfish any day of the week.
I made a sweet barbecue glaze for the salmon. You could also do something creamy, like a lemony-mayonnaise. Use this recipe as a guideline, and I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
Tonight I served the salmon with a side dish of taboulleh, which I purchased at Whole Foods earlier in the week. Rice, steamed vegetables or even coleslaw would be great accompaniments to this dish.
