Firecracker Grilled Salmon Recipe

Let this sensational salmon perk up dinner tonight. With a super-flavorful glaze that kicks you right in the taste buds, this dish is anything but boring! —Melissa Rogers, Tuscaloosa, Alabama
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Grill: 5 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

"This was delicious. So easy and tastes just like some I've had in restaurants cooked on a cedar plank but without the plank. Will definitely make again."

"Just used a pinch of the red pepper flakes as we don't like things too spicy. The flavors are great, especially being cooked on the grill. Thanks for the recipe!"

"Hands down a keeper recipe! My husband was not a big fan of salmon until I introduced him to this recipe... now he has a mini-celebration when I tell him it's on deck for dinner. Very quick, healthy (delicious too!), and light on labor, I'd strongly suggest anyone to give this recipe a go."

"To be honest, this is the best salmon recipe I have ever made, other than the Spicy Salmon Kabobs. Very flavorful! Definitely a keeper!"

"Used frozen coho (silver) salmon, farm-raised in Chile. It was surprisingly fresh tasting. Pre-cut into 5 pcs (20 oz total), and less than 1" at thickest part, chose to broil instead of grilling. Placed skin-side down on foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Broiled 4" from heat 7 min total, basting with reserved marinade last 2 min. Easy, fast, flavorful - expect a thicker fillet would be great on the grill!"
