GRILLED ASIAN SALMON
While my husband and sons were at Scout camp I made this Grilled Asian Salmon and ate it for three days straight. Apparently, unless I have an audience, creativity in my meals isn’t necessary.
By the third day I remembered thinking that I remembered hearing something that salmon should only be eaten once a week due to it’s mercury levels. Or was that just when I was pregnant?? Ahhh. Freak out!
I quickly googled, “Can I eat salmon everyday?”
I was to happy to find out that the answer was yes! Salmon with salad, salmon with quinoa, salmon with broccoli…I was on a roll and didn’t plan to stop.
My kids used to call salmon “pink chicken” which isn’t the best thing to train them to think.
HOW MANY TIMES A WEEK IS IT SAFE TO EAT SALMON?
You should eat salmon at least two times a week according to the America Heart Association. At least! It’s good to eat salmon because of the Omega-3 fatty acids which are great for the heart and brain.
CAN I BAKE THIS INSTEAD OF GRILL IT?
Yes. I’ve had a lot of you tell me that you either don’t have a grill or don’t feel comfortable using it. No problem. You can bake this at 400 degrees in the oven until it flakes with a fork.

Grilled Asian Salmon
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 4 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
Whisk together all the ingredients except for the fish in a bowl, and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the salmon fillets, turning to coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, turning occasionally.
- Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate. Remove the salmon from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade.
Grill the salmon on the preheated grill until browned and the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 4-5 minutes on each side. This can also be cooked in a 400 degree oven for 8-10 minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon.
