Grilled Alaska Salmon Marinade

I love Salmon!!  This marinade is a perfect combination of sweet and spice.  Don't let the Red Pepper Flakes fool you, for the vinegar and sugar provide a perfect balance.  

The key is letting the Salmon marinade overnight.  Salmon is so easy to prepare.  I use a grill pan, lightly oiled.  Grill about 6 minutes on one side, and 4 on the other.   

Grilled Alaska Salmon Marinade
1/2 cup peanut oil (olive oil can be substituted)
4 tbsp soy sauce
4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
4 tbsp green onions, chopped
3 tsp brown sugar
2 cloves garlic
1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp salt

Place salmon in a medium, non porous glass dish.  In a separate bowl, combine all other ingredients and whisk together.  Pour over salmon, cover and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.  Prepare salmon to your liking by grill or oven.
