Grilled Salmon

                                     Makes 8 servings
1/2                     cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2                     cup dry white wine
1/4                     cup lemon juice
About 1/2 teaspoon salt
About 1/4 teaspoon pepper
8                       pieces (about 6 oz. each; max. 1 1/4 in. thick) boned, skinned wild salmon fillet
1/4                   cup (1/8 lb.) butter
Lemon wedges

 
1.            In a large, wide bowl or 9- by 13-inch baking dish, stir brown sugar, wine, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper until sugar is dissolved.
2.           Rinse fish and pat dry. Add to marinade and turn to coat. Cover and chill for 1 to 2 hours.
3.           Lift salmon from marinade and transfer to a 12- by 17-inch baking pan. Pour marinade into a 1 1/2- to 2-quart pan over medium-high heat; add butter and stir until butter is melted and mixture is simmering, 4 to 5 minutes.
4.           Lay salmon, skinned side down, on a generously oiled grill over a solid bed of medium-hot coals or medium-high heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand at grill level only 3 to 4 seconds). Brush fish generously with the baste; close lid if using a gas grill. Cook until salmon pieces are well browned on the bottom, 3 1/2 to 4 minutes (keep a spray bottle filled with clean water on hand to spritz any flare-ups). With a wide spatula, carefully turn pieces; brush tops with baste and continue to cook, basting often, until the salmon is just opaque but still moist-looking in the center of the thickest part (cut to test), about 5 to 6 minutes longer. Discard any remaining baste.
5.            Transfer salmon to a warm platter or plates and garnish with lemon wedges. Add more salt and pepper to tast

  5. Dear Nee,
    Good afternoon...Salmon is one of my favorite dishes. My mom used to serve it to us when we were growing up. We always had rice and broccoli with it. I think your recipe is simple but yet outstanding! I love that little crispness on top and your flavors of this dish must be delicious. Great job, and perfect for the summer grilling season. Thanks for sharing...Blessings on this nice afternoon...Dottie :)

    1. Good evening dear Dottie ,
      I too love salmon and you can also use cod in this dish . You can also serve broccoli and rice with this dish and instead of grilling you can cook it in the oven . Put a roasting pan in the oven on the bottom shelf and put a couple tablespoons liquid smoke and you will get the smoky taste .
      The brown sugar and the wine is what gives it the glaze . Thanks for stopping by dear friend and blessing to you ~Nee ;-D.
