Dan Wells' Grilled Salmon

Good Morning!  This recipe is really good but should be called "Sweet Soy-Glazed Salmon" instead but I didn't want to mess with the official recipe title.  I LOVE SALMON, it has to be good.  And since salmon is so good for you, this recipe is the best of both worlds.  The marinade is easy to throw together, the salmon gets caramelized on the grill, and any dreaded "fishy" taste is gone!  It's like a piece of candy, I'm serious (which may or may not be appealing to you….).

Serve this with some brown rice and a green veggie, and you can celebrate doing a great thing for yourself.  You won't be disappointed.
