Grilled Salmon

So I seriously might have just found a new “Go To Salmon” recipe. And I almost feel a little guilty (I’m very loyal to my favorites). Almost. But this was so good, there is no way I could feel guilty.  I mean, who could blame me?  I think my usual salmon recipe would understand.  This is THAT good.   I marinated the salmon for about 8 hours. And grilled it for about 6 minutes. The salmon was almost caramelized at that point. So very lovely.  This just in!  The Hubs said it reheats great for lunch!


1 1/2 lbs salmon filet
1/3 cup soy sauce (I use reduced sodium)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil


In a ziplock bag, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and vegetable oil. Squeeze bag until sugar is dissolved. Place salmon in bag making sure it is completely covered. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Preheat grill to medium high. Lightly oil grill so fish does not stick. Place salmon on grill, be sure to discard marinade. Cook salmon for 6-8 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork.

Serves 6

Prep time: 15 minutes; Total time (with minimum marinating time): 2 hours, 31 minutes
