Easy Grilled Salmon

posted by 7 years ago


1 1/2 to 3 pounds salmon fillets, skin-on (figure 1/3 to 1/2 pound per person)

Canola, olive, or grapeseed oil for grill

1 c. La Choy Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce (enough to coat salmon)

Cut filles 1 1/2 to 2-inches wide. Place marinade in a large casserole dish (or a plate with sides so the marinade doesn't run). Coat the salmon fillets in the marinade and then place them skinless-side down in the marinade. Marinate for 20 minutes for a quick marinade (can do this at room temperature while you are preparing the grill) or if you have more time from 1-2 hours chilled in the refrigerator. Before grilling, remove fillets from marinade and discard marinade. Prepare grill for high direct heat. When the grill is good and hot, spray or brush oil generously on both sides of fish fillets. Place fillets on grill, skinless side down first, so that they can get nice grill marks on the hot grill while the fish is still firm. Close the grill lid. Cook 1-3 minutes on the first side, depending on how thick the fillets are. Look for grill marks on the fish and a small layer of opaque (cooked) fish where the fish is closes to the grill. Using tongs, and a metal spatula if necessary, carefully turn the fish onto the other side, so that the skin side is now on the grill grates and reduce the heat to medium. Close the grill lid. Cook for another 2-5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets. Salmon should be just barely opaque throughout when done. Remove from grill and serve immediately.
