Soy Sauce & Brown Sugar Grilled Salmon

Jeff and I are big fans of this recipe. It's pretty simple to throw together (as long you remember that it needs to marinate for a while), and salmon is pretty healthy, and it tastes good too! My photos for this didn't come out great (I think they got left on the grill a teensy bit too long), but since it's a recipe we use over and over again (rare for an avid new-recipe-tryer like me), I figured it was worth sharing! 


Recipe adapted from here.

1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets
lemon pepper
garlic powder
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil

1. Season salmon fillets with lemon pepper, garlic powder, and salt. 
2. In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and vegetable oil until sugar is dissolved. 
3. Place fillets in a large Ziploc bag with the soy sauce mixture, seal, and flip bag over a few times to coat all sides of the fillets. Refrigerate for 2+ hours (I usually just prepare mine in the morning and leave it in the fridge for dinner).
4. Preheat grill to medium heat. Place salmon fillets on the grill (discard the residual marinade). Grill for 6-8 minutes per side, or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
