I love salmon…..but it can get old eating it the same way all the time. This is an easy marinade that is versitile enough to be used on chicken, pork, seafood and beef…as well as some fish. It fantastic on salmon. The fatty Omega 3 filled Salmon fillet holds up well with the marinade that will turn ito a nice glaze while cooking.

get a nice piece of Salmon. Since im cooking for one right now, i have a 8oz piece of Farm Raised Salmon….( for you week end BBQ warriors…you can use a whole fillet ).

Salt and pepper your Salmon to taste. Lightly oil your grill and cook on the coolest part of the grill, making sure to cook 2- minutes per turn…..you want to make nice hatch marks on your salmon. Once you flip the salmon over, lightly glaze or brush the marinade over the salmon….. keeping an eye on it so that it doesnt burn. There is quit a bit of sugar in the recipe, so it will carmalize quickly. Brush as much marinade on top as you want. I like to cook my Salmon to around a Medium Well… serve it with a array of vegetables or any starch such as rice and even potatoes….Because of the spices i like a cool Forbidden Rice Salad with orange,apples, Edamame and green onions . Really good. Thats another recipe……..
