My Mom has been making this grilled salmon for years and years and years, but she always sprinkles hers with lemon pepper seasoning before. I decided to ditch the lemon pepper seasoning, and add some sesame seeds and it has now become one of my family's favorites. You can even reduce the marinade over the stove if you'd like for some drizzle. Soooo yummy!
Teriyaki Grilled Salmon
Salmon Fillets (as many as you need)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil (or you could use vegetable oil)
Mix the brown sugar, soy sauce, water and olive oil together and pour over the salmon in either a bowl or a big zip-lock bag. I like a big zip-lock because it's easy to flip in the fridge. Marinade for at least 4 hours. When you are ready to cook, preheat the grill to medium high heat (if you have a temperature dial set it to about 350) When the grill is heated, throw down a piece of tinfoil and spray with nonstick spray. Put your salmon fillets on the foil. Grill about 4 minutes and then flip, pour some of the marinade over and grill another 4-6 minutes until it's done to your liking. Remove from the grill and serve with sesame seeds if desired.
