My husband goes fishing, so I had to get creative with whatever he brings home. This is grilled salmon in a tasty, homemade marinade. Serve with potato and a salad.

Excellent, excellent, excellent. This marinade has become a regular in our household. I mix all the ingredients together and bring to a quick boil (on the stove) to allow the sugar to disolve, then cool the marinade (before placing fish in). I have also substitued orange marmalade for the ginger and it turned out just as good. If you marinade the fish overnight it gives it a more powerful flavor. The leftover fish is also excellent the next day and served cold - I have used on top of salad. Read More

The marinade was great and I would use it on other meats. If you are not a fan of salmon this recipe would probably not change your mind even with the great marinade. Read More

I can't tell you how many times I've made this for company and got raves for it. My friends all have their own copy of the recipe. It's got a nice bit of zip from the ginger and mustard. The sugar adds a great contrasting sweetness. It's our favorite salmon recipe! Added note: You may want to tweak the marinating time depending on how strong you want that flavor to be vs the salmon flavor. I've always let in marinate longer than the suggested time but crossed the line when I went for 6 hours. Too long! Now we marinate it for 1-2 hours usually. Read More

This was a great recipe! I tried it first just as presented and all but my youngest son liked it. The second time I substituted the white sugar with brown sugar and the pepper with minced garlic. With these adjustments even my youngest raved. Read More

i was concerned that the strong flavours in this recipe might drown the delicate flavour of the salmon but I was quite wrong. In fact they add to the flavour without masking it. It is quick and simple to prepare (just requires remembering to put the salmon in to marinade an hr before you want to eat) and went down well with everyone! Read More

My son introduced this recipe to us and we were skeptical at first but it was delicious! It has become staple recipe in our home. However I boiled the remaining marinade and drizzled some of it before serving. Read More

I was planning to make it for lunch the next day but ate about half of it as soon as I cooked it YUM!!! My only variations were seasoned rice vinegar & low salt soy sauce. I mixed the marinade the night before to allow the sugar/flavors to blend. I let it marinade for 2 hours it could have even gone longer. It had a great subtle flavor that didn't overpower the salmon.

This is a very good marinade recipe that does not require a lot of time for preparation (at least the marinade doesn't require overnight). Read More
