Soy Sauce and Brown Sugar Grilled Salmon

This Soy Sauce and Brown Sugar Grilled Salmon is such a simple way to prepare fish, and my kids absolutely love it!


  I’m not the best at cooking on a grill, so the hardest part for me is getting the cooking time right.  Just don’t forget to oil your grill grate before you turn it on. Starting with the skin side on the grill makes the fish easier to turn. If you’re really worried about sticking, rub some extra oil on the skin before placing the fish on the grill. My entire family enjoys this.  Even the child who doesn’t like meat gobbles it up and asks for seconds.

  1. I may be trying this soon! Easy and simple is the way to go with salmon.

  2. i just posted a link here as some of my fav fish recipes! thanks for sharing!

  3. I made this salmon for dinner tonight and it was really good! My hubby was out of town so he couldn’t grill it (I won’t get near that thing!) so I just cooked it in the oven. My 11 year old son was dreading having salmon for dinner all day. Then guess what I heard during dinner? mmmmmm! He liked it! I was almost disapointed that he ate it all because I wanted more when mine was all gone! lol

  4. Im actually making it right now and I have to say, it smells great while cooking. I hope it tastes as good as it smells;)

  5. My family LOVED this recipe. Even my husband, who is never impressed with fish, absolutely loved it. So much great flavor!

  6. I don’t have a grill so I threw this all into a pan and then took out the fish and let the sauce thicken up and poured it over the fish. It was the best sauce. Son loved it and I saved it for d
    future use. It’s a great base (If nothing else) and you’ll love it!
