I don't travel much any more. Resist!

Wesley bought salmon filets the other day at the grocery store, and today he decided he was going to grill it. I looked for recipes online, and found this one at . Peggy Trowbridge gets the credit for making my dinner not just fabulous, but downright incredible.

Easy Herbed Grilled Salmon

- 1/2 pound boneless salmon filet about 1" thick
- 2 T. lime juice
- 2 T. white wine (we used chablis)
- 1 t. mayo
- 1/2 teaspoon each of kosher salt, onion powder, garlic powder, lemon pepper, dried oregano, dried basil, and dried dill weed
- sprinkles of paprika

Preheat grill to high heat. Put salmon filets in little trays made of heavy-duty foil, which have been sprayed with non-stick vegetable oil spray. Sprinkle lime juice and white wine over filets. Spread a little mayo over the filets. Mix together herbs (except paprika) and sprinkle them liberally (maybe even heavily) over the salmon, finish with paprika over that. Then put the salmon on the grill, cover the grill, and cook for 10 minutes per inch of thickness. (In other words, if the filets are each 1" thick, grill them for 10 minutes exactly.) No turning the salmon, either. It'll cook.

That's it. That's all there is to it. And it's SO GOOD, I swear, if I had this dish in a restaurant, that restaurant would immediately become my favorite. It's -- seriously -- YUMMY.

Go buy salmon. I will wait here for your reports.
