Grilled salmon is a delicious and nutritious dish that is popular for its delicate flavor and tender texture. By adding a flavorful glaze, you can elevate the taste of grilled salmon to new heights. In this article, we will explore a delectable glazed grilled salmon recipe.

1. Glazed Grilled Salmon Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each), skin-on or skinless
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ΒΌ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • Optional: chopped fresh herbs (such as dill or parsley) for garnish

Instructions

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper on both sides. Set them aside to allow the flavors to penetrate the fish.

In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, and grated ginger until well combined. This glaze will add a perfect balance of sweet, tangy, and savory flavors to the salmon.

Place the salmon fillets on the preheated grill, skin-side down or directly on the grill grates if skinless. Close the lid and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the salmon is cooked to your desired level of doneness. Baste the salmon with the glaze during the last 2 minutes of grilling on each side, using a brush or spoon.

As the salmon cooks, the glaze will caramelize and create a beautiful, slightly sticky coating on the fish.

Once cooked, carefully remove the salmon from the grill and transfer it to a serving platter.

Garnish the glazed grilled salmon with chopped fresh herbs, such as dill or parsley, for an added burst of freshness and color.

Serve the salmon hot with your choice of side dishes, such as steamed vegetables, roasted potatoes, or a fresh green salad.

Tips

For an extra burst of flavor, marinate the salmon in the glaze for 15-30 minutes prior to grilling. This will allow the flavors to penetrate the fish more deeply.

If you prefer a spicier glaze, add a pinch of red pepper flakes or a dash of hot sauce to the mixture.

The combination of the tender and flaky salmon with the sweet and savory glaze creates a harmonious balance of flavors that will tantalize your taste buds. Whether you’re hosting a backyard barbecue or preparing a special dinner at home, this recipe is sure to impress.
