Grilled Marinated Salmon
Salmon fillets are marinated in a sweet and spicy, soy-balsamic marinade for a minimum of four hours prior to grilling.
4 (4-ounce) salmon fillets
1/4 cup peanut oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar, packed
1 clove garlic, finely minced
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- Combine peanut oil, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, green onions, garlic, brown sugar, ginger, red pepper and sesame oil.
- Place fish in a shallow glass dish, and pour marinade over fish. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours.
- Preheat barbecue or gas grill. Oil the grill rack, and adjust height about 5 inches from coals.
- Remove fish from marinade and place on grill. Cook about 10 minutes per inch of thickness (or until fish flakes easily), turning once to brown both sides. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
