Asian Style Mandarin Copper River Salmon - Roasted on the Grill

Asian Style Mandarin Copper River Salmon - Roasted on the Grill

This evening was an absolutely beautiful evening. It was sunny, mid-upper 70s, and lower humidity (for a change). I had a large fresh wild Copper River Sockeye Salmon fillet that I wanted to cook (I bought it at Costco this weekend for $15.99/lb which is a great price). I roasted it in a large open foil packet on the grill. It was delicious. I had a bag of fresh mandarins and decided I'd incorporate them into the recipe. I wanted a light and delicate Asian style flavor, as to not overpower the delicate flavor of the fresh salmon. I included the easy peasy recipe below. I made a very small amount of "marinade/glaze" to brush on the salmon and it took less than 5 minutes to put together and only 12 minutes to roast on the grill at 425 to 450 degrees F (you could do this in the oven as well). I served the salmon with half of a large avocado with a big fat cherry tomato in place of the avocado seed. It was the perfect light summer meal. Check out the photos and recipe below. Enjoy!
