Honey-Bourbon Salmon

Although this recipe takes very little hands- on cooking time, be sure to allow an hour to marinate the salmon so it absorbs all the flavors of the sweet-and-salty marinade.

  • 4 6 - 8 ounces fresh or frozen salmon steaks, cut 1 inch thick
  • 3/4 cup bourbon whiskey
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Cooking oil or nonstick cooking spray
Thaw salmon, if frozen. Rinse the fish and pat dry. Place in a plastic bag set in a shallow baking dish.
In a small bowl, stir together the bourbon, brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, ginger, and pepper. Pour over fish in the bag. Close bag. Marinate fish in refrigerator 1 hour, turning occasionally to distribute marinade.
Drain fish, reserving marinade. Grill fish on the lightly oiled rack of a covered charcoal or gas grill directly over medium heat. Grill 8 to 12 minutes or until the fish begins to flake easily with a fork, turning and brushing with reserved marinade once halfway through the grilling time. Discard the remaining marinade.
