Grilled Salmon

Salmon was on sale a couple of weeks ago and the weather was nice so I decided to try grilling salmon. That was definitely a first for me. This glaze was pretty good. I left out the ginger because I didn't have any, but this was one time I wish I would have made that extra trip to the store. So I am telling you, don't leave out the ginger! This recipe comes from courtesy of Bobby Flay.

Salmon with brown sugar and mustard glaze
3 Tbs. brown sugar
1 Tbs. honey
2 Tbs. butter
1/4 cup dijon mustard
2 Tbs. soy sauce
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. finely grated ginger
vegetable oil
salt and fresh ground pepper
8 salmon fillets, 6 oz. each
(I used one large piece of salmon from the butcher that I then cut into 4 pieces.)

Melt the brown sugar, honey, and butter in small sauce pan over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and whisk in mustard, soy sauce, olive oil, and ginger. Let cool.

Preheat grill to medium heat. Brush salmon with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place salmon skin side down on the grill. Coat the flesh of the salmon with the glaze. Grill for 6-8 minutes to medium doneness, turn once after 5-6 minutes. Serve with extra glaze on the side.
