Ingredients

Marinade

  • 1/2 c. peanut oil
  • 4 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp garlic minced
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp onion powder

Salmon

  • 4 salmon fillets about 8 oz fillets each

Instructions

  • First mix together the marinade ingredients in small bowl.
  • Place salmon fillets in a nonporous glass dish so they don't overlap. Pour prepared marinade over the top of fillets. Place in refrigerator for at least 1 our up to 24 hours. The longer you leave it the more flavor you will get.
  • Remove the salmon from the marinade and pat dry.
  • Prepare gas grill, charcoal grill or grill pan to a high heat. Place salmon on oiled grill grate. Grill for 5-7 minutes per side. Start with skin side down. You want the salmon to flake when you take sharp knife into the thickest part of fillet. Do not overcook! If it is beginning to flake it is done.
