Expert Tips

The salmon can also be marinated and broiled instead of grilled.

Fish generally takes about 10 minutes to grill for each inch of thickness. Add more time if the fillet is thicker; if you are grilling two thinner pieces, grill the fish for slightly less time.

Here's a timetable for organizing a progressive dinner. Start with appetizers at the first house at 6 p.m., salad and main course at the second house at 8 p.m. and dessert at the third house about 10 p.m.
