I must say that I am not very passionate about salmon in general, but when cooked this way it is hard to resist. I think it was the best grilled salmon I’ve ever eaten. This brown sugar glaze is a perfect marinade with a great balance between the salty soy sauce and the sweetness of the brown sugar and is also enriched with garlic and lemon flavor.. mmmm .. what better way to celebrate spring?
