    I have a fish shaped metal grate (domed also) that folds in half and you place the fish inside and lock the handles closed. Works wonders got it somewhere, sometime a long time ago. Used for backpacking in the Sierras.

    In response to the last commenter (I know this is a year late) – I just cut slits in a 1lb fillet, stuffed it with relish, and baked it at 400F with a bit of olive oil. About 15 minutes.

    You don’t need to get a large fillet and use the kitchen twine, but obviously it doesn’t hurt. Man, this was good!

    Looks great!, We love salmon, but I don,t have a grill in my apartment. Can I bake this in the oven or on a griddle type grill?

    I don’t recommend cooking the whole salmon on a griddle grill inside; it would smell up your kitchen too much. You can easily bake the salmon, you might want to search online though for a baked whole salmon recipe. ~Elise

    This looks great. I just need to find a good source of fresh fish. It seems most of the stuff in our local grocery stores is frozen before it gets to the display case.

    If you have an Asian market in your area, I would try there. Asian markets tend to have the freshest fish at a good price. ~Elise

    Got to try this last night.

    Living near the Pike Place Market, in Seattle, this recipe was a great excuse to use the public market to its fullest potential. I often pass it up for the traditional supermarket, or a corner store, forgetting how really wonderful it is.

    As for my results, they were fantastic. The relish was so delicious, I had trouble not picking at it before I got to stuffing my wild-caught Coho. I served it w/ some steamed green beans, and a rough-chopped braised carrot/chanterelle/onion mixture.

    The only thing I would have changed is this – next time I will certainly have my own homemade preserved lemons. I had to refrain from shouting “That is highway robbery!” when I first saw the price.

    So thanks for the inspiration to use our gem of a public market. And keep up the great work Elise. You are the best!
