Soy Ginger Marinated Salmon Recipe


  • 4 salmon fillets or steaks (allow about 6 oz. per person)
  • lemon wedges, optional.


  • 1 cup sake (Japanese rice wine)
  • 1/2 cup natural soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tbsp. fresh grated ginger
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, pressed
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar


  1. Make the marinade by whisking the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl
  2. Rinse the salmon fillets under cold water, and place in a glass or ceramic dish
  3. Pour the marinade over the fish
  4. Cover the dish and allow the fish to marinate in the refrigerator for several hours (about one to three hours)
  5. At least once or twice during this time, check the fish and spoon the marinade over any exposed parts of the fillets
  6. Fire the grill, or preheat the broiler to high heat
  7. Drain the fish and place on foil on grill or rack in the oven
  8. Cook until desired doneness, (fish flakes easily and is opaque) but be careful not to overcook
  9. Serve immediately, with lemon wedges as garnish if you like
  10. For a complete, satisfying meal, add rice and a salad or steamed vegetables
