I'm trying out a new salmon recipe on the grill!

Best Grilled Salmon Recipe in the World

Grilled Salmon Recipe Ingredients

  • 8 salmon fillets

Best Salmon Marinade Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 5 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, more or less to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

Place salmon fillets in a large resealable plastic bag. In a separate medium bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Whisk together well, and pour over the salmon in the plastic bag. Remove the air from the bag and seal tightly. Marinate the salmon fillets in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.

Wrap the salmon fillets tightly in aluminum foil. Spray the inside of the aluminum foil with non-stick cooking spray before adding the salmon. Lightly oil the grill grates. Grill the salmon for 15 minutes per inch of thickness on a medium hot grill, or until salmon just flakes with a fork. Turn salmon over halfway through grilling.

Baking salmon instructions- After marinating the salmon overnight, place salmon fillets in a glass baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the leftover marinade over the salmon. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for about 20 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.

After you try this grilled salmon recipe, I think that you will agree that it is the best grilled salmon recipe you have ever tasted. You will never make grilled salmon differently again.

And it marinates over night so I get to have something else tonight for dinner.
