Parting Shot: The great salmon grill-off

The Salmon Grill-Off in Jim Kershner’s Spokane backyard tests three recipes: grilled marinated salmon, grilled salmon with citrus butter and cedar-planked salmon.

For one thing, Copper River salmon (and other equally fine Alaska salmon) were showing up fresh in our supermarkets. For another, Father’s Day was approaching.

The connection? You cannot call yourself a true Northwest dad if you don’t know how to properly grill a salmon.
