Grilled Marinated Salmon Recipe
While we live in the PNW, it can be difficult to get fresh salmon. One of my favorite places to buy fresh fish is from a seafood store in Ballard at Fisherman’s Terminal , Wild Salmon Seafood Market. They truly have some of the best fish I have ever had. When Scott and I moved to Renton, we would make it a point to go into the city each month just to get fresh fish.
Why marinate salmon here in the PNW?
Well, when we can’t buy super fresh salmon, then I tend to marinate it. Scott is not a big fan of salmon, so marinating it makes it better for him. This recipe is easy to make and goes with so many different cuisines, ranging from Asian to American. Enjoy!
Grilled Marinated Salmon
This is a versatile marinade that you can use on salmon, chicken, pork or beef. Be sure to allow at least 2-3 hours to marinade for best results.
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients except salmon. Rinse salmon and pat dry. (see note below). Place salmon in Ziplock bag and pour in marinade. Seal tightly and refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours.
Pre-heat grill. We use a lava stone and we allow 15 minutes for the stone to heat up. Grill salmon flesh side down first for 5 minutes. Flip over and grill for an additional 5 minutes or until desired wellness. Serve immediately and garnish with lemon wedges.
If you are cooking on your boat and are not sure about your potable water, be sure to only rinse with bottled water or rinse at home ahead of time.
