“I found that by adding the familiar taste of barbecue sauce, (kids) were more apt to try it. Over the years, this has become one of our favorite ways to eat salmon,” says Kathy Marek, who provided this recipe.

1 pound salmon steak fillets with the skin on one side
½ cup barbecue sauce
Light the grill. Heat to 350 degrees or medium heat. Spray grill generously with nonstick spray.
Grill the salmon, skin side down, over moderate heat until the skin is lightly charred and crisp, about 5 minutes.
Spread a layer of your favorite barbecue sauce on the fish. Turn the salmon. When turning, slide the salmon steak from the skin. The skin will stay on the grill and you can flip the steak. Now apply more sauce.
Grill until just cooked thoroughly, 4 to 5 minutes longer. Transfer the fish to a platter.
