Here’s another marinade that works really well for salmon. It imparted such a nice flavor into the salmon, and of course, kept it nice and juicy.
I personally like to marinate fish because I believe by using a marinade, the fish stays moist while taking it to fully cooked. While some may like it minimally cooked, I think it tends to be a bit soggy. This way, the meat is firm, but still juicy.
This recipe will make enough for 1 large (approximately 2 lb) salmon fillet. And of course, if you are grilling out for a large party, you would need to multiply as needed.
Once again, a sweet marinade from Smoked ‘n Grilled. You know we like it sweet here!
Try this one on other fish as well. You won’t be disappointed.
Honey Apple Marinade for Salmon
1 cup apple juice
3 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup ground basil leaves
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Mix it all together in a bowl. Put the salmon fillet into a tight fitting container and pour the marinade over it. Put this in the refrigerator for 1 hour. After 1 hour, open the container and flip the fillet over and put it back into the refrigerator for another hour.
Now grill it up!
