I’ve been making this recipe for probably close to 20 years, and it tends to be a crowd please. You like salmon? You like bourbon? Boom! It’s all here.  It’s an easy marinade you can use for either grilling or baking  your salmon.

You will need:

  • 4 salmon filets
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons of bourbon
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon ginger 
  • Juice from one lime
  • salt and pepper to taste


   What you do:

  • To prepare the marinade, combine all the ingredients except the salmon in a bowl. Whisk together
  • Put the salmon into a large sealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. (This can be prepared the day before and be allowed to marinade overnight.)
  • To bake, preheat the oven to 420 degrees, place the salmon on foil or a baking sheet, and bake for about 15 minutes, until the fish is flaky and done.
  • If you’re going to grill, I generally put it in in foil and also put it on the grill for about 15 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy! It’s great with rice and grilled veggies.
