Asian Grilled Salmon

I have looked for the perfect glaze for salmon and this is a great choice.  My favorite so far.  The mix of the soy and Dijon mustard is perfect.  Of course it’s from Ina:-).  I used sweet soy sauce because I wanted a little sweetness, but if you have regular it would still be great (and that is what she uses.)  The sweet adds some calories, but it was really good.

Are you confused when it comes to buying seafood?  My mom and I were talking about buying sustainable fish and how you know if what you are buying is a good seafood choice or one to avoid.  If you want a good source of info on buying any type of seafood check out Seafood Watch and it will give you information on any type of fish that you can buy.   It tells you your best choices and what to avoid because of overfishing or potential PCB contamination. There is even an iPhone app or pocket guide that you can download.

Ideally when it comes to Salmon you want to buy Alaskan or Pacific Northwest and stay away from the Atlantic Salmon.  I won’t get into much more detail than that, but if you want some good information on buying seafood check Seafood Watch out.

In the meantime, try this out and enjoy!

Soy Glazed Grilled Salmon
  • 1- 1.5 pounds of salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons sweet soy sauce (you can use regular if you don't have the sweet)
  • 6 tablespoons good olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  1. Combine mustard, soy sauce, olive oil and garlic. Brush half over salmon fillets. Let salmon sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Light your grill to a medium high heat and lay your salmon skin side down. Grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side (depending on how thick your fillets are.) Once cooked remove from the grill and drizzle the remaining marinade over the fish. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes before serving.
  3. Enjoy!



  1. We have great salmon here in the Pacific NW and this looks like a fantastic recipe, Becki. Salmon doesn’t need a lot of dressing up and these wonderful flavors would be perfect. The main thing with salmon is to not overcook it.
