Grilled Asian Salmon*

1 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tsp minced fresh ginger
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
2 center-cut salmon fillets, about 5 oz each

Purchase center-cut salmon fillets for this recipe thinner fillets, cut from the tall end of the salmon, can too easily overcook on the grill. Salmon skin cooks to a tasty crispiness, so keep the skin on when grilling.

In shallow glass dish, combine sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, and vinegar. Add salmon; turn to coat. Marinate, refrigerated, for 30 minutes to 1 hour, turning occasionally.

Preheat grill (medium-high heat); lightly oil grill. Place fillets on grill, skin-side up. Grill about 5 minutes per side. Fish is cooked when a thin knife blade inserted in center reveals that the pink flesh is almost opaque. Serve warm.
