How to Grill Salmon by Hip2Save.com
I’ve tried cooking fish in the oven and have had lots of fails so I really believe the grill is the way to go! So yummy! 🙂 We like to serve this meal with some grilled veggies over brown rice (these Roasted Brussel Sprouts would also be a great side). I love that my kids will actually eat fish prepared this way and it’s super easy for a quick weeknight meal!

    Would this work with frozen fish?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes! You’ll want to rinse the frost off and pat dry with with a paper towel so seasoning will stick. Also it may take a little additional time to cook.

  2. Liezl

    That looks yummy! I must love that as it has some sweetness in the marinade.😋

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Ya so far it’s the only way my kids will eat it. 😀 You could always just that or use honey as another reader suggested.

      • Jennifer

        I have also used maple syrup and it is delicious!

        • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

          Oh yum!

  3. Amy

    I love salmon and this looks delicious!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks Amy! Enjoy 😀

    The salmon oven trick is to put it on parchment paper, skin side down at 375 for 15 minutes, let rest for 3 minutes.
    It works every week at our house. Also works if the salmon has no skin and is any side down!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks for the tip!! 👍🏻

    • Myr

      Also, this is pretty much the exact marinade we use as well and it’s DELICIOUS! We use honey instead of sugar sometimes and we just boil the leftover marinade for about 1 minute of hard boil and pour it over rice as a side. Yummy!

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        That sounds awesome!

  5. Jennifer

    Love this! I use brown sugar, chili flakes, salt, and olive oil and my whole family just raves about it. They like it better than steak! Can’t wait to try this recipe, thanks Lina!

  6. Amy H

    Just dump those brussel sprouts, from the recipe you linked to, right on the grill next to the salmon….so delicious cooked on the grill, and no heating up the oven in summer!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yum love that idea!

  7. BreB

    Hey, Lina. I was wondering if you had any good power bite recipes. I’ve seen dozens, usually made with nuts, dates, honey, etc, but I’d love to hear if you have a good version.
