Recipe: Grilled Gingered Salmon

This is one of my most requested recipes, and theres never a crumb left when I make it.

Grilled Gingered Salmon Ingredients

  • 1 cup soy sauce

  • 1 cup muscovado (dark brown) sugar

  • 1 (5 inch) piece of fresh ginger root, peeled and minced

  • cup olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed

  • 1 (3 pound) whole salmon fillet with skin

  • 1 untreated cedar plank

How to Make Grilled Gingered Salmon

  1. Whisk together the soy sauce, muscovado sugar, minced ginger, olive oil, and garlic in a bowl, and pour into a resealable plastic zipper bag. Add the salmon fillet, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight or up to 2 days.

  2. About 1/2 hour before grilling, soak cedar plank in water.

  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  4. Remove the salmon from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Place the salmon, skin side down, onto the cedar plank.

  5. Grill with the grill cover closed until the salmon is opaque but still juicy, about 20 minutes. Carefully remove the salmon from the plank in one piece, leaving the skin on the plank.

Grilled Gingered Salmon Reviews

  • This is really tasty, and really easy. Cut way back on the sugar (to about a tablespoon for a halved recipe) and didnt miss it. It was great even without marinating time Added a couple of Thai red chilis also, and garnished with chopped cilantro. Grilled without the plank. This one is a must-try. After making this a few times: zipping up the ginger and garlic in a mini food processor makes it even easier. Toasted sesame oil is delicious in place of the olive oil, and 1/8 teaspoon is nice if you like some heat.

  • Only marinated it for about 30 minutes then stuck it in foil on the rave reviews Love when something is simple And delicious

  • Delicious i used half the brown sugar. i only had time to marinate my hoco fillet salmon for 30 mins. 30 min soaking time with my cedar plank too. worked out fine. being a thinner piece of salmon it took longer to grill than i thought it would. i use a charcoal grill. it took about 30 mins to cook. next time ill soak the plank longer. slow cook the salmon. so worth the wait

  • We absolutely loved this recipe As with most, we made a few modifications. We did not have the dark brown sugar or molasses, soe we used regular brown sugar and syrup. I love garlic and was very liberal with it. Because of our busy schedules, we had to postpone the meal an extra day (so it marinaded for two whole days). Oh my goodness If there is any way you can soak it for two days, Make it so We also soaked the cedar planks for two days in water. This really kept them from catching fire. Using fresh minced ginger is the only way to go (used extra ginger too).

  • This recipe has far far too much sugar as written. What a way to ruin a beautiful piece of salmon. As one other reviewer wrote, cut the sugar way back to a tbsp or two max and the soy sauce back to about half (use low sodium) and let the flavor of the fish come through.

  • This is a great recipe. A great variation is to switch the muscovado for 2 tbsp og honey and a few drops of sesame oil..... deeeeeelicious

  • This is a brillrant brunch dish served with deviled eggs and caviar

  • This was an excellent salmon recipe My new "go to" marinade. Used maple planks. Followed the recipe exactly.

  • Oh yummy DH went on and on. Even the teenager ate some. I didnt have a way to light my grill, so I fixed it in the oven. I went ahead and used the cedar plank, although I am not sure it did anything in the oven. But still, this was delicious Thanks for sharing

  • Soooo good My kids devoured it and asked for more. Thank you

  • Perfect

  • I followed the recipe except I grilled them without the cedar plank. They turned out great. We had one with a salad and with a lettuce wrap the next day. A keeper

  • Easy and delicious. Cant beat that

  • Made this last night for dinner and it was very tasty and so easy to do. I am a ginger lover so this was another wonderful way to use it. We do not have a grill right now so i just baked it in the oven. I will be making this again.

  • My go-to salmon recipe. Love it

  • I made this while camping, my family loved it so much I had to make it again two weeks later for Fathers Day. My parents brag to everyone how good it is and now my Aunt is going to make this week. simple and easy and its always all gone, no leftovers. the longer it marinates the better it is, I use low sodium soy sauce, and no one seemed to mind a bit
