Grilled Soy-Ginger Salmon

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

The salmon is marinated in olive oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, onion, and paprika. Very easy to make. I bought six 6 oz salmon steaks and doubled the recipe. Also, instead of grating the onion and ginger I put it in my Cuisinart to save time. Came out excellent.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine marinade ingredients
  2. Cover salmon with marinade and let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes. Flip salmon over after 10 minutes to marinade the salmon equally.
  3. Cook on uncovered grill, directly over medium coals for approx 7 minutes each side. Baste with remaining marinade throughout grilling.
  4. Note--When grilling salmon flip with spatula.

Made this tonight for Mother's Day and there were 8 very pleased people. It was delicious. I served it with my lemon rice and Janine's Southwestern black bean salad. I had to increase the recipe obviously for more servings and I had lots of marinade to baste with. Thanks for posting JohnP84! *Made this again for our friends, Geoff and Jane, tonight and Geoff had 3 portions! I sprinkled some powdered ginger on top of the salmon too this time for fun. P.S.-Jane asked for the recipe! Thanks again!

I just made this recipe and it was fabulous! The marinade was delicious. Best salmon I've ever made and my husband never eats fish and he loves this dish!
I followed the recipe but didn't grill the fish. I put it in the oven at 350 for 21 minutes and it came out wonderful. I did not let it cook in the marinade. I had it marinating for 20 minutes then transferred the fish to a pan to put in the oven. It turned out like something better than a restaurant would serve! Thanks for sharing the recipe, JohnP84.
