Sweet Soy Grilled Salmon


Soy sauce + orange juice + brown sugar = always good.  Don’t you think? I love that combination.  And I love that combination on salmon, so I made it this weekend for our Memorial Day BBQ. Salmon, marinated for hours and hours, grilled to perfection with a sweet glaze on the outside. And I ate the leftovers cold all week (I love leftover salmon straight from the fridge).
Recipe
·       5-6 skinless center cut salmon fillets
·       1 cup soy sauce
·       ½ cup orange juice
·       ½ cup brown sugar
·       1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
·       ¼ teaspoon minced garlic
·       ¼ teaspoon pepper
Mix all marinade ingredients in a large Ziploc bag, add the salmon, and marinate for 8 hours.  Take the salmon out and grill on a hot grill (400 degrees or so) for about 10-15 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Ours was served with a grossly excessive number of sides. I can’t help myself, Sundays do that to me. 
My niece described this salmon as ‘epic.’  But for full disclosure she also said that about my Vaseline chapstick.
