Look For Fresh Salmon On Sale
We love fresh salmon in this family, but it’s expensive, so I watch for sales at the grocery store. My favorite way to cook salmon is on the outside grill, but I do cook salmon on the stove-top with a grill pan on rainy days or when I’ve discovered, too late, that the propane is on its last fumes. I marinate the salmon briefly in an oil-based marinade to keep the like fish from sticking to the grill pan. Salmon does not have to marinate long to enhance the cooking and flavor – 15 minutes to 30 minutes will do the trick.

Grill Pan Ginger Salmon
- Total Time: 45
- Yield: 4 1x
- Diet: Gluten Free
A simple marinade of soy, ginger, and honey enhances the salmon and can be prepared indoors on a grill pan or outside on the grill.
- 4 6–oz skin-on salmon fillets (1 per serving)
- 1 Tablespoon soy sauce*
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1 teaspoon ginger paste or 1 teaspoon fresh ginger peeled and minced
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 lemon cut in quarters
- Marinade. Whisk the soy sauce, honey, ginger, and olive oil in a small bowl. Place salmon on a plate skin side down, pour marinade over pieces and sit on the counter for 15 – 30 minutes.
- Cook Salmon:
- A. Indoors on a Grill Pan: Bush grill pan with olive oil. Place fish skin side down on the grill pan and cook for 8 – 10 minutes. Turn and cook an additional 2– 5 minutes. This skin side can take more heat than- the flesh side, so I do the skin side first. Salmon is done when the flakes separate easily, and the flesh inside is semi-translucent in the center.
- B. Grilling Outdoors – Preheat the outdoor grill to 400°. Place salmon filets skin side down in a well-greased basket and cook for 5 minutes per side or until the flakes separate easily and the flesh inside is semi-translucent in the center.
- Serve. Place fillets on a platter and serve with lemon wedges.
* Gluten-free diet – use gluten-free soy sauce; Paleo diet – use coconut aminos; SCD use grain-free tamari

Great glaze! I cooked in the oven on grill pan. It was great!
Glad you liked the recipe. I made salmon this week too and grilled it in the rain. I should have used the grill pan.
