Joel and I were shopping at Costco and decided to get a fillet of salmon. They just looked so good and the idea of BBQing a salmon for dinner sounded perfect. When we got home I looked up some ideas for how to cook the salmon, and found this recipe for Brown Sugar and Soy Sauce Grilled Salmon. I know how much Joel loves Asian inspired foods, so I thought the use of soy sauce in a marinade would be something he might enjoy. Even though we were not able to let the salmon sit in the marinade for longer than about twenty minutes, it still tasted wonderful. Paired with my caprese salad it was a pretty good dinner. The brown sugar will caramelize a bit in the heat of the BBQ, combined with the tartness of the lemon, flavors of the soy sauce and garlic, this was great on salmon. Joel, who is not a big sea food eater to start with, asked for this recipe to be added to our file of favorites!
