Grilled Salmon

Grilled Teriyaki Salmon

I really miss the warm weather.  It is 28 degrees today and I just don’t feel like firing up the grill.  A girl can dream though! I made this at the end of the summer and just didn’t get around to posting it. Very simple and quick too.


  • 1 lb salmon filet
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons mirin
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • Vegetable oil, for brushing
  • Pepper
  • Fresh cilantro

How to:

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the soy sauce, brown sugar, mirin, ginger and garlic to a boil over high heat.
  2.  Lower the heat and simmer until the sauce is reduced by about half (about 15 minutes)
  3. Divide the sauce into 2 small bowls; reserve 1 bowl for after the salmon has been grilled
  4. Preheat a grill to high
  5. Lightly oil the grate.
  6. Pat the salmon dry and brush with oil
  7. Brush the flesh side with sauce and season with pepper.
  8. Arrange the salmon on the grill skin side down
  9. Grill while  occasionally basting with more of the teriyaki sauce
  10. Grill about 15 mins
  11. Remove from grill, pour reserved sauce over salmon and & garnish with fresh cilantro
