How to Make Fire Cracker Grilled Salmon


  1. Marinade: combine all ingredients except salmon. and whisk well to combine. Remove 1/4 cup of this marinade to be used later for basting.
    Place salmon in a zip-lock bag and pour in the marinade. Seal and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat grill to high. (400F).
    Remove salmon from marinade and let set for 10-15 minutes.
    Discard marinade!
  3. Grill salmon without the lid until the fillets are opaque. 5-6 minutes depending on thickness.
    Turn the fillets a few times and baste with the reserved 1/4 cup of the marinade.
    Remove and discard shin.
    I buy skinless fillets at Sam's club. So no skin to remove. :-)
