Although this recipe has a number of ingredients, its just as good if you only have soy sauce, ginger and honey (or maple syrup or brown sugar). It’s a bit of a kitchen sink recipe––it works in almost any proportion and marinated for almost any amount of time. The sweet and salty flavors are great and the ginger gives is an Asian Fusion sort of a feel. I would try this with sockeye but not with king.Ingredients:
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/3 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 green onion, chopped
- 1 (1 1/2-pound) salmon fillet
- In a large Zip Lock plastic bag, combine ginger, garlic, soy sauce, orange juice, honey, and green onion; mix well. Place salmon in bag and seal tightly. Turn bag gently to distribute marinade. Refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes.
- Preheat an outdoor grill to medium heat and lightly oil grate.
- Remove salmon from marinade, shake off excess, and discard remaining marinade. Grill for 12 to 15 minutes per inch of thickness, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. It’s best to leave just an 1/8″ of semi-raw flesh in the middle. This will finish cooking as the fish sits immediately after grilling.
