Soy and Ginger Glazed Salmon

I didn't get very good pictures of this for a very simple reason.  I was hungry and had to eat it.

Yield:  Serves 4

1 tbsp minced fresh ginger
3 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 tbsp soy sauce 

2 tbsp sesame oil
4 salmon fillets or one giant piece of salmon!


the ginger, garlic, rice vinegar, brown sugar, sesame oil and soy sauce in a bowl and mix.  If desired, reserve some of the mixture to use as a dipping sauce (or use on vegetables as I did!).

Pour the mixture into a shallow dish, large enough to fit the salmon.  Place the salmon filets into the dish flat side up.  Let marinate for 10-15 minutes.

Preheat grill to medium high.  I chose to cook this right on the grill, but if you have a grilling plank, that would probably be easier.  If you do do it right on the grill, be sure to spray it with some cooking spray first.

Cook the fish for about 4 minutes per side, or until it turns completely white.  Transfer to a plate and spoon reserved sauce over it, then serve.  Yum!

Tips:  The large piece of salmon looks impressive but be sure to easy several spatulas to ease it off the grill.  I served this with mixed vegetables (peppers, onions, broccoli, mushrooms) that I had marinated in the same sauce.  Enjoy!
