Grilled Salmon That Will Change Your Life

You guys, I found the best recipe for salmon.  It is seriously so good.  And until the past few years, I didn't even think I liked salmon.  I just always assumed it would have a strong fishy taste, and I had no clue how to prepare it, so I just steered clear.  This recipe has been a major game changer.  I really think even if you are not a fish eater at all, you should still give this a try.  It's that good.  And so, so simple.  I forgot to take a photo, which is probably a good thing.  My food photography skills are severely lacking, as are all of my photography skills, but that is neither here nor there.

Recipe from Honey Bear Lane, originally adapted from allrecipes.com:

1-3 Salmon fillets
1/4 C brown sugar (I only use 2 tablespoons)
2 T lemon juice
1 t black pepper
2 t salt (I only use 1 teaspoon)
1/4 C soy sauce
1/4 C olive oil
1/8 C water
2-3 cloves minced garlic

Dump all ingredients in a plastic baggie, add in salmon, and marinate for at least an hour.  Make little foil packets/boats for the fillets (we make individual boats) and pour on remaining marinade.  Grill for about 20 minutes.  The recipe says to take the salmon out of the foil packet and put it directly on the grill for the past few minutes, but ours is always falling apart too much to survive directly on the grill, so we just skip that step.  I didn't say it was pretty.  I said it was good. 

I haven't tried this in the oven, but I'm guessing it would have similar results.  We use the frozen salmon fillets from Costco, and they work great.  I like serving broccoli with this, and a little macaroni and cheese never hurt anybody.  Let me know if you try it!
