Ginger-Miso Grilled Salmon

 

Ginger and Miso Grilled Salmon

These salmon filets are marinated in a wet rub for about an hour and then placed onto the grill. Make sure the fish still has the skin attached at the bottom. If it does not, then consider cooking them on a plank. This will reduce the risk of breakage while on the grill.
