Basic Grilled Alaska Salmon

Postby Juneaudave » Tue Aug 03, 2010 10:43 pm

Summer means fresh salmon, and at our house, we’re always looking for quick and easy ways to enjoy this seasonal treat. This is our everyday recipe for the grill, and a recipe sure to please! The brown sugar and soy sauce marinade needs no further seasoning.

About ½ hour before grill time, place salmon fillets in a marinade made by mixing:

¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup rice vinegar

While the fish is marinating prepare a medium hot grill. We prefer charcoal for salmon. The oil in the marinade will prevent the fish from sticking, so there isn’t a need to oil the grill itself.

To grill, place the fish skin side up to first glaze the face of the fish and get the nice grill marks. When ready, flip the fish and finish with the skin side down. We’ve found that about 3 or 4 minutes per side per ½ thickness is about right for salmon. Enjoy!!!

Fresh Salmon. I hate you.

My mouth is watering over that recipe.
Still graced with two eyes and ten fingers (due in no small part to luck!).

Just when you think a problem is solved, an uglier result replaces it.

We have been very fortunate, last weekend we caught 17 cohos and a king between three of us!

Okay, now you are just being mean.

Those are great looking fish.
