  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup water
  • salmon
  • garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • orzo pasta
  • tomatoes
  • basil
  • lemon
  • olive oil
  • red wine vinegar
  • butter


  1. In a large plastic bag, add soy sauce, brown sugar, water.
  2. The salmon is also seasoned with garlic, salt, and pepper. For the sides, some sort of orzo (this time we added tomatoes, basil, lemon w/ olive oil and red wine vinegar) or rice and grilled asparagus (with lemon and butter).
  3. Once you create the marinade, you can let the salmon sit in the bag for as long as you want (ideally, 2 hours) until it’s time to go on the grill.
