Soy-Dijon Grilled Salmon
Although we love to grill year-round, there’s nothing like grilling during summer fun! The breeze, the sun and the friends coming over for grilling is the perfect combination. One of our favorite proteins to eat is salmon. However, there’s so much more than just making a simple seasoned grilled salmon. Inspired by Asian flavors, this Soy-Dijon glaze idea was born… better yet this Soy-Dijon Grilled Salmon recipe was born!
You can accompany this recipe with your favorite summer salad or veggies. It’s one of those simple yet elegant recipes that will impress your friends and family. Trust me, this recipe was the one chosen by my mom to celebrate my sister graduating college.
One more note, if you love garlic, you can add minced garlic to the glaze. We didn’t add it this time because it’s not a favorite of hers. Give it a try and let us know how you liked it.
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic (optional)
- 2 6-ounce pieces salmon fillet
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Oil spray
- In a small bowl whisk together honey, soy sauce, mustard, and oil.
- Season the salmon with salt and pepper.
- Set salmon, skin side down in a oil sprayed disposable aluminum container.
- Light charcoal grill.
- Once the coals are ready to go, put the aluminum container with the salmon on indirect heat.
- Brush glaze on the salmon at least four times in 4 minutes intervals. (I've found that cooking the salmon this way takes about 20 minutes or so depending on its thickness.)
- Transfer salmon to 2 plates and serve with your favorite side dish. (I served this one with sautéed mushrooms.)
