Fire Cracker Grilled Salmon

Ingrid Parker


This is a recipe, that even non-lovers of salmon devour. Left-overs, if there are any are great next day on a green salad.

6-6oz. salmon fillets
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1-1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. toasted (dark) sesme oil
1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. onion powder


1Marinade: 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.
2Heat grill to high. (400F).
Remove salmon from marinade and let set for 10-15 minutes.
Discard marinade!
3Grill 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. :-)
