This is very quick to prepare; I have marinated the salmon for as little as 1/2 an hour, yet it has plenty of flavor. For ease of preparation, we buy individually portioned salmon from a big-box store. We prefer to grill it on our indoor contact because it's SO quick. I've used straight brown sugar, Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, and straight Splenda - and they all work very well. But I think the brown sugar or the brown sugar blend will give you a little better color.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together olive oil, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, pressed garlic, pepper, and minced onion; Pour marinade over salmon; cover and refrigerate at least 1/2hr, or up to two hours.
  2. If using an indoor contact grill: after pre-heating, grill salmon on lowest setting for four minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  3. If using a conventional oven: Preheat oven to 350°; bake salmon, uncovered, for 15-18 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork.

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! This recipe turned out better than I hoped for! I baked the salmon on parchment paper and it was perfect.

What a delicious and easy recipe. I used a bit more garlic because we love it and cooked on the panini grill. The fillets turned out wonderfully. I poured the remaining sauce into a skillet and reduced it down a bit and poured it over the salmon before serving. I served with a spinach salad and brown rice. Paired beautifully with a glass of chardonnay. Thank you.

Excellent dish, I added a pinch of ginger , a little bit extra garlic and left out the onions. This was superb. Paired with rice and asparagus. Next time I am roasting the asparagus with the salmon in the same sauce.
