Grilled Salmon With a Ginger Orange Soy Glaze
2 salmon filets, 1 1/2 inches thick
For the marinade/glaze:
1/4 C. orange juice
1/4 C. soy sauce
1/4 C. cream sherry
1/4 C. Dijon mustard
2 T. freshly grated ginger
2 T. honey
Combine all marinade/glaze ingredients and pour over salmon in an airtight plastic bag. Marinate for no longer than 30 minutes.
Preheat barbecue to medium-hot. Remove salmon from marinade and place 2 T. of the marinade in a small dish (for the glaze) and the remainder in a small saucepan. Place salmon flesh-side down on the clean grill. Cook salmon about 4 to 6 minutes. Flip and brush with glaze. Cook another 4 to 6 minutes. Keep an eye on it, as the fat from the salmon can create flames.
Meanwhile, cook marinade until bubbling and slightly thickened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove salmon and top with sauce. Serve immediately.
