muscovado (dark brown) sugar
1 (5 inch)
piece of fresh ginger root, peeled and minced
1 (3 pound)
whole salmon fillet with skin
untreated cedar plank
This is really tasty, and really easy. Cut way back on the sugar (to about a tablespoon for a halved recipe) and didn't 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.
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.
Only marinated it for about 30 minutes then stuck it in foil on the grill...got 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 i'll 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 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.
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!!
