Asian Grilled Salmon

When I was searching for a grilled salmon recipe a couple days ago, this is the first one that I came across. I kept looking around and read lots of others, but came back to this one. It uses really basic ingredients, and aside from the salmon, I usually have everything else in my kitchen (or whichever kitchen I may be cooking in). I also tend to have luck with Ina Garten recipes and love the food she creates.

This salmon comes together really quickly for a last minute meal. The marinade is a great combination of flavors that makes this salmon stand out from other fast and easy salmon recipes. It tastes like it would have taken much more time to put this together, but all you need are 20 minutes (including grill time). I made this with a salad and some grilled corn for a perfect summertime dinner. You can serve this with extra marinade on top or just the way it is from the grill. Either way, it is delicious, flavorful and definitely worth your time.

Recipe from Ina Garten
Serves 6

3 pound of salmon fillets, skin on
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons soy sauce
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic
extra oil for your grill

In a bowl, mix together the mustard, soy sauce, oil, and garlic. Drizzle half the marinade on the fish and allow it to sit for 10 minutes.

In the meantime, heat your grill to high. Make sure your grill is well greased. Place the salmon skin side down on the grill. Grill for 4 to 5 minutes (depending on how thick the salmon is). Turn over, making sure the grill is still well greased, and grill another 4 to 5 minutes. The salmon may be a little undercooked in the middle, so allow it to rest for up to 10 minutes. It keeps cooking while it sits.

Place salmon on a plate and drizzle the remaining marinade on top, if you'd like. Pin It Now!
