Grilled Salmon with Lemon Herb Marinade

Serves 6


1 3­ pound salmon fillet, in one piece

1 clove garlic, minced

2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

2 tablespoons parsley, chopped fine

2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves

Juice of 1/2 lemon

2 tablespoons sesame oil

¼ cup extra­virgin olive oil

Coarse salt and freshly ground

pepper to taste

1 lemon, cut into 6 wedges

Wipe salmon fillet dry with paper towels. Combine remaining ingredients (except lemon wedges and rosemary sprigs) in small bowl and mix well. Pour mixture over salmon, making sure it is coated on both sides. Marinate for at least an hour before cooking.

Preheat broiler or grill. Cook salmon, turning once — five to six minutes each side for medium rare.
