Grilled Marinated Salmon

We love salmon here but sometimes the same old recipes get a little boring. What I like about this one is the layering of flavors and the fact that the fish is grilled, creating those awesome char lines on the outside while the inside stays moist and tender.

Grilled Marinated Salmon

4 salmon fillets

lemon pepper

garlic powder


1/3 cup soy sauce

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup oil

1/3 cup water

1. Wash and pat dry your salmon fillets. Sprinkle both sides with lemon pepper, garlic powder and salt to taste.

2. In a small bowl combine the last 4 ingredients to make the marinade. Put the salmon into a large ziplock bag and pour the marinade over them. Lay flat and refrigerate two hours, if time allows. Turn the bag at least once.

3. Preheat your grill for medium heat.

4. Lightly spray grill with cooking spray (pure oil is best) so the fillets won’t stick. Place salmon on grill and discard marinade.

5. Cook about 5 minutes on each side.

  1. Oh boy! I love grilled salmon but haven’t tried this marinade on it so I will be doing that very soon. It’s salad season at our house and there’s nothing better than a cob salad using this instead of ham or chicken. Love it!

    • Haha- thanks! My hubby actually did that. I probably should have given him mention since I’m sure I would not have been able to make those perfect grill marks myself. And his OCD loved it, too 🙂

  2. That Salmon looks wonderful! Your marinate looks like it is a real winner! Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great summer weekend and come back to see me real soon!
