Bourbon Ginger Salmon

We're on the precipice of a three day weekend, one that signals the end of summer.  No more lazy summer days.  No more white pants.  No more grilling?  Ha!  Over at the Sweet Pea home, we grill Postal Service style:

Neither snow nor rain nor...just about any weather will keep us from grilling if the mood strikes.

But if you're looking for a tasty grilling recipe for your last summer grill-out, here's a good bet:

Bourbon Ginger Salmon

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce (use GF to make this recipe GF)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons bourbon
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 - 1inch piece ginger, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 - 4-6oz filets of salmon

Mix soy sauce, brown sugar, bourbon, oil, ginger and garlic in a small bowl:

Rinse and pat dry salmon and place in a dish:

Pour the marinade over the salmon:

Stir to ensure full coverage:

Let marinate for 1-2 hours:

Preheat grill to medium high and grill, skin side down, for 6-8 minutes, or until it flakes gently when pressed with a fork:

Serves 4.

Life is sweet,
