This 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. And 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
- 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 glaze in 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 medium bowl.
Turn salmon over and grill until 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 small bowl over salmon.
This Soy glazed salmon goes really well with a nice Garden salad and a nice bottle of Sav Blanc.
