Grilled Salmon Ingredients

  • 3 lb. side of salmon, skin on
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce

Grilled Salmon Directions With 5 ingredients

  1. Lay salmon skin-side down on a cutting board and cut salmon crosswise into 6 equal portions, transfer to a 13 by 9-inch baking dish skin side down.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together soy sauce, mustard, garlic, and olive oil until the mixture is emulsified (entirely comes together).
  3. Set aside about 2 Tbsp of the marinade mixture, then spoon and spread the remaining mixture over salmon, let rest at room temperature 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat the grill over medium-high heat to about 400 degrees F. Clean grill grates and brush with oil.
  5. Place salmon on grill skin side down and cook about 4 minutes, then carefully flip (I sort of roll it) and continue to cook another 4 minutes or to desired doneness.
  6. Remove skin from salmon, then plate and brush remaining 2 Tbsp marinade mixture over salmon.
  7. Serve warm garnished with parsley if desired.
