Grilled Honey-Soy Salmon

When it’s winter time, I often forget how amazing grilling outside is: not much prep or clean up, and great food in a short period of time. Maybe it’s because the thought of going out to the grill in freezing temperatures causes me to erase all memories of summertime happiness and grilling. Anyway, I’m very happy that it’s grilling season and that I can make most of my meals quickly and easily outside in my lovely backyard. 

This grilled honey-soy salmon is delicious and basically requires no prep, other than mixing it into some marinade. It’s super yummy and simple to make, and it pairs perfectly with grilled veggies – so no cooking in the kitchen is necessary. It only takes a few minutes to make this healthy and lip-smacking meal, so maybe I could actually grill this meal during the winter. Somebody, remind me later! 


3-4 wild-caught salmon fillets, skin on

¼ c. soy sauce

Juice from ½ lemon

3 Tbsp. honey

2 Tbsp. olive oil

2 cloves of garlic, minced

Salt and pepper

Place the salmon fillets in a glass container with all other ingredients, mix together with your hands, and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours prior to cooking (or any amount of time up to overnight). 

When it’s time to cook, spray or brush the grill grates with oil and then heat to medium. Cook the salmon skin-side up for 3-4 minutes, turn over, and then cook the other side for 3-4 minutes, or until cooked through. Season with salt and pepper if you’d like. Enjoy!
