Asian Marinated Salmon

When someone brings you a fish, you eat and you eat well! A friend brought back a beautiful salmon from a recent fishing trip and a recipe I had seen over at my addiction, Pinterest, came to mind. 

The original recipe called for garlic powder. I swapped out the garlic powder for ground ginger. Just not crazy about garlic on salmon.

A little whisking, a little marinating and dinner is there. You can do this in the oven as well, but at the time I made this I was still down an oven and this was really nice on a grill pan. I like the way it caramelized at the edges. I don’t think it would have done that in the oven.

  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets
  • lemon pepper to taste
  • ground ginger to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 1/3 C soy sauce
  • 1/3 C brown sugar
  • 1/3 C water
  • 1/4 C vegetable oil

Season salmon fillets with lemon pepper, ground ginger, and salt.

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.

Preheat grill for medium heat.

Lightly oil grill pan. Place salmon on the grill pan (discard marinade). Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

NOTE: With the exception of the time to let the fish sit in the marinade, this is lightning fast to make. Great with any sides. I made a seaweed salad. Will post that later. Have to do it again, wasn’t happy with first results.
