Whiskey-Marinated Grilled Salmon is an easy to prepare and delicious fish recipe that we are sure you will enjoy!
35 minutes, plus additional 6-24
hours for marinating. Serves 8
½ cup Olive Oil
2 – Tsp Sesame Oil
7 Tbls Kikkoman Soy Sauce
2 Tbls Hot Sweet Chili Sauce
¾ C Canadian Club Whiskey
3 Tbls Brown Sugar, Dark
5 Cloves Garlic, peeled and finely minced
1 ½ – 3 Lbs Salmon
Marinate: Wisk together oils, sauces, whiskey, sugar, and garlic together.
The day or day before you are planning to cook salmon, place it in marinate and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight. (Zip lock baggie works great)
Place salmon on aluminum foil tray on upper rack of grill or grill on a soaked cedar plank directly on grill grate (soak plank for a least an hour), skin side down. Cook 20 minutes at 400° basting once with marinade in the last 5 minutes.
Slide spatula between skin and fish to remove for serving. We like to turn the salmon over and remove the brownish gray flesh that can impart a strong flavor to the salmon.
This can also be served cold like smoked salmon.
