Hoisin Glazed Salmon

  • Rating:


1 whole salmon fillet, skin on
3 garlic cloves, sliced
2 shallots, sliced
1/2 inch ginger, sliced
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp sesame oil


Mix the garlic, shallots, ginger, honey, hoisin sauce, mirin and sesame oil together.  Place the fillet, skin side down, in a shallow baking pan, then pour over the marinade.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Preheat the grill to 450 F, then turn off the flame on one side.  Place the salmon, skin side down, on an oiled grill pan and place the pan on the cold side of the grill.  Lower the top and grill for 20 minutes, brushing every 5 minutes or so with reserved marinade.  Move the fillet to the hot side of the grill and grill over the flame for 5-10 minutes to crisp the skin.
