Grilled Bourbon and Orange Salmon

I was never a big Salmon fan, up until a few years ago. I have quite a few delectable recipes… we’ll start off with this one (it’s amazing)!


  • 1/4 cup bourbon (use straight bourbon if you can, or something like Jim Bean)
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 chopped green onions
  • 3 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 (6 oz) salmon filets


  1. Combine the bourbon, orange juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, onions, chives, lemon juice and garlic in a large zip-top plastic bag, then add the salmon to the bag.
  2. Seal and marinate for 1 1/2 hours, turning the bag occasionally.
  3. Remove salmon from the bag, reserving the marinade.
  4. Place salmon a grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray.
  5. Cook 6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting frequently with marinade.
