Ginger and Soy Salmon

May 14, 2012

Salmon is a great option for a quick dinner–especially when you’re a little low on time and energy.  This marinade only needs to sit for about 30 minutes and the grilling time is only a few more minutes.

Overall, I would say that this is one of my favorite salmon dishes. The fresh garlic and ginger in the marinade adds a vibrant kick to the salmon. While the caramelized grill marks are crunchy and sweet.

We served the salmon with really basic roasted potatoes and sautéed green beans. It’s a mostly hands-off dish—so it’s nice to get a little done during the marinating time.

Ginger and Soy Salmon

1 salmon fillet

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Combine the vinegar and next five ingredients in a large zip-lock plastic bag. Shake to combine. Add salmon and marinate in the refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once.

Grill the marinated fish for approximately 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
