Salmon is back on the specials for this week beginning today, March 4. Tom Thumb's price is $5.99 per pound, while Albertson's price is $4.99 per pound.
This is definitely on the menu for tonight. I hope everyone picked up salmon fillets this past week. When buying salmon, I purchase based on number of people and serving size. Because we are watching our weight (who isn't?) I allow 4 ounces for me and 6 ounces for DH. Since there is no shrinking in cooking salmon, there is no need to calculate extra ounces. Here is the fabulous recipe from www.allrecipes.com
1 ½ pounds salmon filets
⅓ cup soy sauce
⅓ cup brown sugar
⅓ cup water
¼ cup vegetable oil
lemon pepper, to taste
garlic powder, to taste
salt, to taste
Season salmon fillets with lemon pepper, garlic powder, and salt.
In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and vegetable oil until sugar is dissolved. Place fish in a large resealable plastic bag with the soy sauce mixture, seal and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Preheat grill for medium heat.
Lightly oil grill grate. Place salmon on the preheated grill, and discard marinade. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
