I've been craving salmon lately and this recipe did the trick. The slightly sweet and salty marinade won us both over. The original recipe is for the grill but we baked it in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Perfection. This one will be making another appearance! I served it up with my asparagus and some couscous.
Grilled Sweet and Salty Salmon
1.5 pounds salmon fillets
lemon pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
salt to taste
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1. Season salmon fillets with lemon pepper, garlic powder, and salt.
2. In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and vegetable oil until sugar is dissolved. Place fish in a large resealable plastic bag with the soy sauce mixture, seal, and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
3. Preheat grill for medium heat. Lightly oil grill grate. Place salmon on the preheated grill, and discard marinade. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
