Grilled salmon with spicy honey soy glaze

Grilled salmon with spicy honey soy glaze

Grilled salmon is a huge hit in my house. I have cooked it many ways including smoking it, but grilling it is my absolute favorite. Don’t be afraid to grill because it because you think it will stick, there are ways around it. One technique I learned about grilling fish and meat is patience. You have to wait for a crust to form. Once it does – the grilled salmon, burgers or whatever will not stick to the grill grates. So please be patient and wait before flipping. Don’t be one of those constant grill flippers!..  if you’re still nervous about it,  lay your fish on a layer of simple lemon slices. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
