Grilled Salmon w/ Ginger Soy Glaze

salmon finishedIt’s summer so it’s grill time! I’m by no means a grill master but it gives such an amazing taste! And nothing says summer like grilling out. I don’t have a grill so I’ve commandeered my parents’. This recipe is really flavorful. Pair with some grilled veggies and you’ve got yourself a delicious and healthy dinner.

Calories: 210 per serving (about 4oz of salmon)

What you’ll need:

2 tbsps soy sauce

2 tbsps brown sugar

2 garlic cloves

1 lemon

1/4 tsp ginger (powdered or minced)

1 salmon fillet (preferably with the skin still on)

Mince the garlic as fine as possible. Put in a bowl. Add the brown sugar, soy sauce and ginger. Cut the lemon in half and give one good squeeze of the lemon. Mix together. Taste the mixture… if you want a stronger ginger flavor add some more in.

You don’t want the fish to break. The skin may come off…. that’s ok. When finished, the fish should be a light pink color. DON’T overcook. Salmon can really dry out. But it’s delicious when it’s moist, and I think the glaze really adds something.
