This was going to need to be marinated. A long time.

I opened the refrigerator door and a blast of stench hit me. I knew right away what it was; the salmon that had expired 10 days ago. First I rinsed it well with cold water. Much better. It still could be salvaged but I knew it needed to be infused with a flavor besides that of rot. The wonder of marination.

Grilled Salmon
Serves 6


  • 1 1/2 pounds of salmon fillets
  • lemon pepper to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil


  1. Season salmon fillets with lemon pepper, garlic powder, and salt.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and vegetable oil until sugar is dissolved. Place fish in a large resealable plastic bag with the soy sauce mixture, seal, and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Preheat grill for medium heat.
  4. Lightly oil grill grate. Place salmon on the preheated grill, and discard marinade. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
