Grilled salmon

Earlier this week I wrote about the Mediterranean diet and how it can lower your risk for stroke. One of the staple foods on this diet is salmon. I didn’t grow up eating a lot of seafood, but now I like grilled salmon better than a big old steak. Here’s a wonderful recipe that will win over anybody who’s not a fish fan.

Ingredients

6 salmon fillets (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Lemon pepper to taste
Garlic powder to taste
Salt to taste

Directions

1. Season the salmon fillets with lemon pepper, garlic powder and salt.

2. In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water and vegetable oil until the sugar is dissolved. Place the fish in a large resealable plastic bag with the soy sauce mixture. Seal the bag, turn to coat the fillets and refrigerate for at least two hours.

3. Preheat the grill for medium heat.

4. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the salmon fillets on the preheated grill and discard the marinade. Cook the salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
