Grilled Salmon with Honey Soy Marinade

I'm all for making any post that enhances someones fishing experience. This is a really easy recipe for a great main course.

First you need a good sized Salmon or Steelhead. Fillet it, cut out the ribs and skin it. Cut each fillet into 4 pieces.

Rinse the fish thoroughly, you can soak it over night in water with a dash of salt and some lemon if you like.

For the marinade you need to mix these ingredients in equal parts. I use 1/3 of a cup for a medium to large sized fish (8-15lbs)

Soy Sauce
Brown Sugar
Olive Oil
Melted Butter
Clove of Garlic

First I melt the butter, then add the olive oil. I use a garlic crusher that can sometimes shoot the crashed garlic out and can make a mess in liquids. Then add all the other ingredients and mix well.

You can put the fish into a dish with the marinade or use ziplock bags if you prefer. The bags are easier because I like to turn the fish over so the marinade soaks in equally, so just flipping the back over works well. Marinade 30 min to 1 hour.

You can bake, broil or grill it, but I really love this grilled! I set the grill on high to get it nice and hot, turn the heat down and spay with Pam. Before putting the fish on the grill make sure that there is an ample amount of marinade on both sides. Fish will typically take about 10 minutes to cook per 1 inch of thickness. When you flip over the Salmon be sure to re-apply the marinade, this keeps the fish moist and avoids burning.

Serve with your favorite Veggies and rice or pasta with parmesan .
