Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine soy sauce, maple syrup, garlic, ginger, pepper, and salt in a shallow container with a tight-fitting lid. Place salmon, flesh-side down, in the container and seal. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate. Once heated, turn down one side to low heat.

  • Place salmon, skin-side down, over low heat on the preheated grill and close the lid. Allow to cook, basting once with reserved marinade, until easily flaked with a fork, about 20 minutes. Salmon will easily remove from the grill by sliding a spatula between salmon and the skin.

Cook's Note:

Aluminum foil may be placed under salmon on the grill for easier cleanup.

Nice flavor on the marinade. I love grilled salmon and this was a nice change of pace. If you're like me and don't like your salmon overcooked, I highly recommend you cook for less time. Mine was plenty done after 12 minutes - cooked through but very moist. Read More

LOVED the flavors, but the grilling heat and time this recipe calls for seemed to dry up the salmon way too much, and I followed the instructions to the T. Even at the midway point when I went to re-baste the fillets I noticed it was already seeming to dry at that point. I think next time I will try this recipe again but on a stove-top skillet Read More

Oiled my salmon and got it on the grill. I added more maple syrup and basted the fish while it was on the grill. Wow. It was delicious. This took me 12 minutes to grill. 6 minutes per side. Read More

I made this recipe as is and we loved it. Will do it again but will add half the salt as it was a bit too salty because of the soy sauce. I didn’t find it too sweet at all. Depends on your preference. Read More

I have made this recipe several times, on the bbq and in the oven. It's always tasty and easy to make. We followed the recipe exactly today, and it turned out as described, with the fish coming easily off the slightly crisp skin. Read More

Too sweet and the maple flavor is too strong for our tastes. It was okay,but if I make it again, I will replace the maple syrup with honey and add more ginger. Although this will make it a completely different recipe, so I probably won't make this way again. Read More

Really good as is! Just watch it on the grill. The syrup in the marinade burned a little. Read More
