Lemon & Ginger Grilled Alaska Salmon Strips
Strips of nutrient-rich salmon take a nice long soak in a honeyed lemon, ginger and soy marinade prior to grilling.
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped green onion
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 (1 1/2-pound) Alaska salmon fillet, skin on, cut into 1 1/4-inch strips
1 teaspoon thinly sliced lemon peel, for garnish
- Mix canola oil, lemon juice, green onion, soy sauce, honey and ginger together in large shallow glass dish. Add Alaska salmon strips and coat well. Refrigerate 2 to 6 hours, turning several times.
- Heat grill. Remove salmon strips from marinade; discard marinade. Place salmon, skin side up, on medium-hot grill for 3 minutes. Turn carefully, and continue to cook, skin side down, for an additional 3 to 4 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove strips from grill by running a spatula between the skin and the salmon.
- Garnish with chopped green onion, lemon peel and lemon slices.
Makes 4 servings.
