  • 2 pieces salmon preferably wild caught Alaskan
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp lemon pepper or lemon juice and/or zest and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp garlic ground, minced or fresh
  • sea salt to taste
  • fresh ground pepper to taste


  • Mix the last 5 ingredients in a bowl or pan. Place salmon in marinade for 20 minutes—cover both sides and turn occasionally.
  • Prepare grill–moderate heat. For easier clean up put a little cooking oil on a paper towel and oil the grate. This can also be prepared in an oven—350-375 degrees –with a raised grill insert in an oven-safe pan. Put some foil or parchment paper in the bottom of the pan for easier cleanup. Both can be reused several times.
  • Grill the fish skin-side up for 6 minutes the turn fish and grill skin-side down. Pour marinade over the fish for extra flavor. Grill another 6 minutes or so, depending on thickness of fish.
  • Top with freshly chopped parsley. Serve with any sides you like. Particularly good with mixed grilled vegetables and any kind of rice.


Note: An excellent variation is to add freshly grated or even ground ginger to the marinade.
