Mom, When Can We Have Salmon?

This is our very favorite salmon recipe. I always make at least 3 of the marinades. One to use and two to freeze for future meals.

This recipe serves four and I could only calculate the points using all of the ingredients. Obviously, you aren't going to eat all of the marinade and leaving out the oil will decrease the Points value tremendously. Rough estimate: approximately 5 Points per serving.

Gary's Salmon

1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup orange juice concentrate
2 tablespoons vegetable oil-- I leave this out
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 tablespoon green onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
4 salmon steaks (1 inch thick)
1 tablespoon olive oil-- I usually just spray the fillets with nonstick spray

In a shallow glass baking dish, combine soy sauce, orange juice concentrate, oil, ketchup, lemon juice, mustard, green onion, garlic, and ginger. Place salmon in marinade, and turn to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.
Remove salmon from marinade. Pour marinade into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 minute.
Lightly oil the grill grate. Brush or spray salmon with olive oil. Cook on grill for 5 to 10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Turn salmon once, and brush with boiled marinade halfway through cooking time.

You can broil this too if the snow's too deep to get to the grill (and yes, I've had this happen).
