Brown Sugar Grilled Salmon

READY IN: 19mins
Recipe by surus

Part of our annual trek to the mountains is cooking out streamside. This year I decided to try salmon and found this recipe on another site. I scaled it back to feed 2 and marinated the fish for about 6 hours. It was spectacular. You can baste the fish while it's cooking if you wish, but not necessary. We used a grill basket and oiled it first to prevent sticking.

I just realized this is on the front page...I made this last night and it was very good. I love lemon pepper so I was genreous with it. I was all out of brown sugar (didn't realize until the last minute) so used the tablespoon I had of splenda brown sugar and the rest was agave syrup. I think the agave added a nice flavor...I didn't grill I just cooked it in the marinade at 350 for 20 minutes. By the end of the 20 min the sauce got nice and gooey and thick and wonderful. I served this with couscous and peas although I think a veg fried rice would be good with it.
