Salmon Dishes

Salmon is one of the fish that I love eating all year round but mainly during the summer. Here are some Salmon dishes that I want to try making. If anyone has tried any of the ones I post let me know how it is and feel free to make suggestions. Yes I did put the weight watchers values on there because as you all know how I enjoy being a part of the weight watchers community.
