Grilled Salmon

The weather in Minnesota has been unseasonably warm lately. I think it was this same day last year when snow first fell. Right now I am out by the grill and comfortable in just shorts and a t-shirt. To go along with my pretending that it is still summer I had my man grill while I sat near by sipping on a beer. Since, it gets dark at 6:35pm we had to use a flashlight to take our meal off the grill. Overall it was a delightful evening and our dinner was amazing! The marinade gave the salmon a hint of sweet and sour while keeping the interior moist. After dinner Dan said “why haven’t we been eating more fish like this!” I was flattered and a bit sad that grilling season is probably over.

Grilled Salmon


  • juice of one lemon
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1-1/2 lb. salmon fillets

Approximately 2 hours before grilling mix all ingredients together and place in a bag to marinate. Then grill for about 6 minutes each side. Enjoy!
