Recipe: Soy-Dijon Grilled Salmon
Although we love to grill year round, there’s nothing like grilling during summer! One of my favorite proteins to eat is salmon. However, there’s so much more than just a simple grilled salmon. Inspired by asian flavors, this soy-dijon glaze idea was born.. better yet this soy-dijon grilled salmon recipe was born!.
Since my sister graduated college, I thought this would be the perfect dish (sans the mushrooms ’cause she doesn’t like them) to celebrate her success. The beauty of this dish is that you can serve it with your favorite veggie side dish! It’s one of those simple yet elegant recipes that will impress your friends and family.
One more note, if you love garlic, you can add minced garlic to the glaze. We didn’t this time because it’s not a favorite of my sister.
- 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.)
