This may just have to be my new go to salmon marinade or at least an addition to my list of favorites. Usually when I’m going to grill salmon I use either my standard soy, lime, and OJ marinade or a classic balsamic and garlic marinade. Well this one combines the best of both, and it’s incredible. A little sweetness from the balsamic (and honey) balanced by the saltiness of the soy. Delicious!
3 Tbs. Balsamic – a good aged one works best
3 Tbs. Soy – reduced sodium of course
2-3 Tbs. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbs. Brown Sugar
1 Tbs. Honey
1) Whisk and marinate. An hour is ideal, but we don’t always have that time. Try not to marinate for more than 2-3.
2) Preheat grill to medium-high. Sear skin side down (if skin is still on) for 4-5 minutes. Flip and grill for another 2-3 minutes.
Done! Serve with freshly grilled or roasted veggies ( I like asparagus with mine) and a nice mixed green salad. Easy and healthy.
