The Best Grilled Salmon Recipe Ever!
Author: adapted from allrecipes.com
Recipe type: Entree
- 1-3 salmon fillets, depending on size
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 2 tsp salt
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ⅛ cup water
- 2-3 cloves minced garlic
- Purchase your salmon as fresh as you can. I prefer the taste of farm-raised to wild caught because I think it tastes less fishy. But don't buy the frozen fillets if you can avoid it. Put the fish in a plastic bag with all the other ingredients and seal it with as much air pushed out as possible. Marinate for at least an hour, up to three.
- When you are ready to cook, heat up your grill. Then make a little dish out of aluminum foil with sides. Slide the fish on your 'dish' and add a little of the marinade on top. Put the fish skin side down. Then push the whole dish onto the grill. Close the lid and grill for about 20 minutes. After that is done, flip the salmon over onto the grill to sear the top, then you can scrape off the skin (it should lift right off.) Grill for 1-2 minutes and then serve.
