1/4 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon bourbon
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 (8 ounce size) salmon fillets


Combine juice, soy, brown sugar, bourbon, pepper, garlic powder and oil in a bowl. Remove all skin from the salmon. Place the salmon in a glass dish side by side. Pour some of the marinade over (reserve some for basting while grilling). Refrigerate for at least 1 hour a few hours will be even better.

Drain and grill over medium-high about 5-7 minutes per side or until fish flakes-basting with the reserved marinade.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
This was a big hit, seven of us all enjoyed the subtle flavor additions to a fish that tastes great anyway. I reduced the soy and increased the bourbon, but the bourbon flavor is lost, or very subtle anyway. This is one we will use again.

Recipe is wonderful, however I do add just a little more garlic. Everyone that doesn't like salmon loves cooked with this marinade.

This was a wonderful recipe! We increased the bourbon to 2 teaspoons, reduced the soysauce a bit, and grilled the salmon on top of tinfoil with some pineapple chunks.

Wonderful. I served it with the Vegetarian Baked Stuffed Peppers recipe on this site. I reduced the vegetable oil to 1/4 cup which was fine. The next time I may reduce the soy sauce to 1 tbsp and increase the bourbon to 2 tsps. Another "hit" with our company.
