This recipe is great to use when your favorite fish is on special at the store. Buy and cook some extra. While grilled tuna tastes excellent prepared this way, I think salmon would be too strong a taste in this. Of course, it could be because I don't care for salmon in general.

My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
