soy glazed salmonThis quick, simple mix-and-grill recipe for a soy glazed salmon features a delicious sweet-hot glaze made with only four ingredients. These directions tell you how to grill the salmon steaks until they’re cooked through.

Just remember any marinades on your grill will create a mess, so make sure you clean your grill plate properly.  With Salmon make sure you have started your grill with a clean plate.

If you prefer your fillets medium or medium-rare, reduce the cooking time by 1 to 2 minutes per side.

Soy Glazed Salmon

Serves 2


  • 3 Tbsp. (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 4 tsp. prepared Chinese-style hot mustard or Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 7- to 8-oz. salmon steaks (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • Vegetable oil, for brushing


Build a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to high. Whisk brown sugar, mustard, and soy sauce in a medium bowl. Transfer 1 Tbsp. glaze to a small bowl; mix in vinegar and set aside.

Brush one side of salmon steaks generously with half of the glaze in a medium bowl. Brush grill grate with oil. Grill salmon steaks, glazed side down, until glaze is slightly charred, about 4 minutes. Brush top side of salmon steaks with remaining glaze in a medium bowl.

Turn salmon over and grill until the second side is slightly charred and salmon is just opaque in the center, about 5 minutes longer. Transfer salmon to plates. Drizzle reserved glaze from a small bowl over salmon.

This soy-glazed salmon goes really well with a nice Garden salad and a nice bottle of Sav Blanc.

Grilling is an art form, but grilling a decent salmon steak really takes practice. So take your time and if you want more amazing recipes to throw on the BBQ, try these.
