A simple soy sauce and brown sugar marinade, with hints of lemon and garlic, are the perfect salty-sweet complement to rich salmon fillets.

The Story

Grilled salmon with rich soya marinade, seasoned with lemon pepper and garlic. Served with lemon and sour cream mashed potatoes and a beautifully fresh strawberry and balsamic salad. Goodness! My favourite fish recipe of all time. Modified and adapted over 6 years. It's now just gorgeously perfect.

The word salmon, any variety of fish of the genera Salmo and Oncorhynchus, comes from the Latin salmo, which later became samoun in Middle English. Many Native American tribes depended heavily upon salmon in their diet.
