This unusual salmon marinade makes for an exceptionally moist and delicious final product. Two guests remarked tonight that it's the best salmon they've ever had. You might not normally be tempted to try these ingredients together, but if you're looking for a change from ordinary grilled salmon... which is certainly delicious on its own... give this one a try and you may be pleasantly surprised. I highly recommend you use fresh, wild king salmon if you can get it.

Fantastic marinade. Great tip about the grilling of salmon, as this was our first time.
this is a great recipe and simple. Taste is fantastic. Have made this three times for friends and will continue to have this on the menu for a long time to come.
I make this almost once a week because it's so fantastic! This is one of my favorite salmon recipes by far! If we don't feel like firing up the grill I bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 min and it comes out perfect!
We are fortunate to live in California where winter was almost non-existent this year. Because of the mild weather, I've been able to BBQ the whole year. And since salmon is the family favorite, I wanted to come up with something more interesting than oil/lemon/garlic. Since finding this recipe for "Dark Balsamic, Soy and Honey Glaze" marinade, I've not looked back. It even makes "previously frozen" salmon taste amazing. Don't miss the author's grilling tips -- the high heat keeps the fish moist and leaves the skin behind where it can just be burned off. If you're using an old-school Weber (like me), separate the coals after they get white; build up the sides with 6-8 more coals and let them get white. Now your fish can go right down the center f the really hot grille, but over indirect heat. Nice!!
Fabulous, will make again.
Tried this recipe for the first time about a year ago. It is now my "go to recipe" for salmon. Easy, delicious, and the kids love it too. I do use a little less oil than the recipe calls for. Highly recommended.
So delicious but only without the balsamic!
