Grilled Lemon Salmon with Cilantrro

I continue to read the benefits of Salmon. Last time we made it we all enjoyed it. So I decided to try a new variation for the barbecue.

1.75lb Wild Salmon Fillet
1 T Soy Sauce mixed with 1 T Water
Juice from 1 Lemon
1 T Lemon Zest
2 T Ginger grated (I used my zester )
2 T Cilantro Chopped in small pieces
1 T Molasses Mixed with 1/8 C Water
5 or 6 Green onions chopped in small pieces
1 tsp. Liquid smoke


1. I pulled the fillet out of the freezer and just put each ingredient on separately. You could mix them all together and pour it on at the same time. Either way works. marinade for 2 hours.

2. Preheat barbecue on medium high heat. Lightly oil grill.

3. Put Salmon on grill skin side facing up. Cook about 8 min.

4. Turn over apply a little more marinade. Turn down to medium and cook another 6- 8 min. Cook until it flakes with a fork.

5. Some great sides would be Quinoa, Brown Rice, or Barley. I have also mixed all 3 together they go well together. :) Here is a recipe for a grain side.

I served it with a Brown Rice 2/3 and 1/3 Millet, and had Cucumber cut in slices, with fresh pineapple slices. We Squeezed fresh lemon juice on it after it was cooked. Nice healthy meal Yeah!


  1. I made this salmon last night and it was delicious. I especially enjoyed it as leftovers for lunch today. I love cold salmon.

  2. Yeah! I am glad you liked it. When are enjoying eating fish a lot more. It is a fun change for dinner. :)
