Salmon is one of those fishes I really love to grill. It turns out so good, and it is quick and easy to make too. So, today I’m going to show you how to make grilled ginger salmon. This recipe uses a simple basting sauce that gives the salmon some great flavor.
Grilled Ginger Salmon Recipe
First off let’s get to what you will need:
4 salmon fillets
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp fresh ginger, finely chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
Set up your gas or charcoal grill for direct grilling over medium heat. While your grill is warming up grab a small mixing bowl and combine the honey, ketchup, ginger, salt, and hot pepper sauce. Mix it all together well. For the hot pepper sauce you can use anything you would like such as Tabasco sauce, or what I usually use is Sriracha sauce. You can get some here.
Once your grill is heated up brush the grill grate with some vegetable oil. This is important, because fish has a tendency to stick to the grill. Place the salmon fillets skin side down on the grill over the heat. Cover and cook for 8 minutes.
Remove the grill lid and using a basting brush, coat the fillets with the sauce mixture you made earlier. Cover the grill and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes. The internal temperature of the salmon will be 145F when it is done. Here is the instant read thermometer I use.
Once it is done remove from the grill and serve. This salmon is so good; you and your family will really like it. The basting sauce gives it a great flavor. One other thing you may want to try is using grilling planks. Cedar planks will give the salmon a bit of smoky flavor, and you also won’t have to worry about the fish sticking to the grill. Here are the cedar grilling planks I use. They are nice to use because they add a great flavor to your grilled fish.
