Salmon goes well with the sweet flavor of ginger. Let it soak up some of that goodness, then grill it – easy, quick and good for you too!
What you need:
- 4 salmon fillets (1#)
- 1 ½ cup (12 oz.) gingerale (the full sugar kind)
- 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon dried, ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
- 1 teaspoon flaked sea salt
How to Do it:
Mix the gingerale, brown sugar, ginger, lemon pepper and ½ teaspoon salt in a shallow dish.
Place the fish skin side down, then turn so it is skin side up. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Remove the fish from the marinade and dry on paper towels. Sprinkle the remaining salt evenly over the skin.
Heat a grill or grill pan on medium-high heat. Cook skin side down first, until the skin is a dark golden color and crispy.
Turn and cook skin side up for just a couple of minutes, until the fish is cooked through. Be careful not to overcook.
Goes great served with rice and a bright green vegetable (like broccoli or zucchini)
