Fabulous Family favorite!!! Super easy and lots of flavor! Made many times and never had negative results. If there are any leftovers this salmon makes a wonderful salad topper for lunch or a salmon salad sandwich. When cooking on the cedar plank or adding liquid smoke, it takes the salmon to a whole new level of flavor. Awesome... best of all this is pretty much idiot proof! Try serving with Crazy Easy Corn (On the Cob) or Corn and Tomato Salad With Cilantro Dressing for a great tasty feast.

Directions

  1. Mix oil, soy sauce, scallions, garlic, and ginger to make a marinade, pour over salmon and marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator. (no longer than an hour or the salt in the soy will begin to cook the meat).
  2. Grill, bake or grill salmon for about 4 minutes per side (when salmon flakes when pierced with a fork).
  3. **** (for a smokier flavor, add a couple splashes of liquid smoke to marinade -or- soak cedar planks in water for a few hours and grill the salmon on the cedar on the bbq). FABULOUS FAMILY FAVORITE (KIDS TOO). ****.

I increased the garlic to two cloves. Don't skimp on the ginger, it truly adds to the flavor. I have made this twice with salmon steaks (baked at 350 for 15 minutes) and once with a beef steak. I marinated it for a couple of hours. It was great for both.
Thank you Chili Spice.

Wonderful! I used a cedar plank (for the first time) in the oven, since it was raining outside. this was the best salmon I've ever eaten - thanks!
