Grilled Salmon With Brown Sugar, Garlic and Ginger

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 8 mins

Extremely easy. And easy to scale up for parties. Moist, sweet and salty, it's good hot or cold (or leftover in the best salmon sandwiches ever). My family won't let me cook salmon any other way.


  1. Heat your grill to high.
  2. Mix together the sugar, salt, garlic powder and ginger powder.
  3. Arrange the salmon on a grill basket or on foil skin side down. Sprinkle the mix over the entire fillet.
  4. Place the grill basket on the rack and turn the heat down to medium high. Grill with the lid closed until the fish is firm to the touch and just cooked through. Grill time depends on the thickness of the fillet.

Wow, my friend this made for dinner one night and it was the best salmon I've had in years! The taste was unbelievable!!!

I had a nice salmon fillet that I've been trying to figure out what to do with since everyone in my family hates fish. This was super simple and tasted fantastic! Even my very picky four year old chowed this down. The only thing I would change is lightly salting the fish first, then sprinkling the rest of the ingredients on. Otherwise the salt doesn't cover the salmon evenly and some parts of it came out too salty.
