Marinade For Grilled Salmon
"My DH is an avid fisherman & we are lucky to live in a country where the seafood supply is bountiful. We are esp fond of salmon & prefer it grilled w/the smoky, lime flavor of this mango chutney based marinade. I use the marinade all day & then reserve it to use for a sauce I make while my DH grills the salmon. The combo of the grilled salmon w/the marinade sauce has been a big hit w/our friends & family. ENJOY!"

Great tasting salmon that even my picky daughter happily ate! I used orange marmalade instead of the chutney. Very nice substitution..
- 24 ounces salmon fillets (4 fresh fillets 6 ounce each, 1 in thick)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup lime juice (may use lemon juice)
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup mango chutney
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1 teaspoon dill
- Old Bay Seasoning (optional & I always use it)
- FOR SAUCE
- Reserved marinade
- Cream cheese to desired consistency
What You Will Need
- No special items are required
Combine the 8 marinade ingredients (plus Old Bay if using) in lrg plastic bag, add salmon fillets & marinate for 6-8 hrs before grilling. Reserve marinade for Steps 2&3.
While salmon grills, transfer reserved marinade to a sml saucepan by pressing through a sieve. This allows the bulk & flavors of the garlic & chutney to join the sauce w/o making it chunky.
Over low-med heat only, add cream cheese by the spoonful & incorporate it into the marinade until the sauce reaches your desired consistency. Remember this sauce will thicken further as it cools & is not meant to resemble gravy. It should be a lightly-creamed glaze that still shines w/the flavors of the marinade.
NOTE FROM ME: For those who might like to try an alcohol-flavored marinade option, I've been using a cognac extract add lately that we adore & guests have esp appreciated. I suppose that a bit of the real thing or other extracts would also work well, but give it a try if the idea appeals to you.
