Asian Grilled Salmon

I have been grilling salmon like mad around here the past few weeks…I don’t think I will ever eat it any other way.

1.5 lbs. salmon, cut into two servings
2 T Dijon mustard
3 T soy sauce
6 T olive oil
1/2 tspn garlic, minced

Prepare grill by brushing the grilling rack with oil to prevent the salmon from sticking.

While the grill is heating up, whisk together the mustard, soy sauce, olive oil and garlic in a small bowl. Drizzle half of the marinade on the salmon and let it sit for about ten minutes.

Place the salmon skin side down on the grill and discard the marinade the salmon was sitting in. Grill for about five minutes, then use a wide spatula to flip the salmon over and cook for about another five minutes.

Transfer the salmon to a plate, skin side down, and drizzle the remaining marinade on the salmon. Let the salmon sit for ten minutes and serve.

We had this with a baguette, a salad and some fresh fruit.

What did the family think? I really liked it. Hubby thought it was good, but he also said this was not his favorite salmon dish that I have fixed lately. It might have helped it I had followed the recipe and only let the salmon sit in half of the marinade and saved the rest for later, but I didn’t pay attention and used ALL of the marinade for marinating. Whoops. Either way I thought it was good. The kids had shrimp for dinner, which they ate without any sort of fuss.
