Grilled Asian Salmon

This Grilled Asian Salmon first made its debut in 2010, but it has evolved into my very favorite salmon marinade. With the grilling season in full swing, you’ll definitely want to add this to your menu.

I’m not sure there’s much Asian about this recipe besides the soy sauce and garlic, but that’s what my recipe inspiration called it. I’ve tweaked it a bit since its debut, primarily by adding the juice of half a lemon to the marinade. I think that small alteration kicked this up more than a notch. I’ve grilled this on our Weber grill and our Big Green Egg as the smoke from the charcoal gives it another fabulous flavor dimension. But feel free to broil or use your gas grill if you prefer.

Stepping Back in Time

This recipe was shared in July of 2010, only months after starting my blog. I revealed how Bill will dust off the snow on the grill and fire it up in January as long as we’re not in the midst of a blizzard. He admitted that he and Nick once brought our Big Green Egg into the house when I was out of town. Apparently the lid was frozen shut and they needed a burger fix. Sheesh. Anyway, here is a snippet of this early post (those usually consisted of a LOT of bad photos and a sentence or two!): Each year for our neighborhood 4th of July gathering, we pull our grills into the pea gravel at the foot of our yard. We’ve grilled the typical brats and burgers; but this year, I had gorgeous wild salmon fillets. This super easy marinde inspired by Ina Garten was incredible. There was not one morsel left for the retriever who is always delighted to hoover up any crumbs.
