Soy-Glazed Salmon

Over the weekend my parents cleaned out their deep freezer (which was filled to the brim with fish)... which means we were the proud recipients of bags full of big, fresh-frozen salmon fillets from my dad's August fishing trip in Washington.


With the 'Indian summer' and 100+ degree temperatures we are experiencing right now, outdoor grilling seemed like the only sensible method for cooking tonight. We thawed out some of our newly acquired salmon fillets, and used a super simple marinade to make this delicious grilled Soy-Glazed Salmon.


The quick and easy soy sauce and brown sugar marinade has hints of lemon and garlic... it's the perfect salty-sweet compliment to the rich salmon fillets. Soy-Glazed Salmon is a healthy satisfying dish that everyone will enjoy!

Lightly oil grill grate. Place salmon on the preheated grill, and discard marinade.

So good!

We enjoyed this healthy, flavorful meal with a side of brown rice and steamed broccoli. This recipe will be a grill go-to from now on!

Be good to your body, eat your salmon! Salmon (and other fish) is packed full of Omega-3 fatty acids. These Omega-3 fats seem to primarily work through reducing inflammation in our bodies. Inflammation is turning out to be at the base of many health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, some types of cancers and arthritis. Omega-3’s also help prevent the blood clots which cause many strokes. And not to mention, it tastes great too!

Enjoy.
