As I was eating this the other day, I started thinking back to when the kids were little. They wouldn't eat any kind of fish at all unless it came in a box and was labeled "stick". It made dinner tough at times when the grown-ups wanted fish and the kids wanted nothing to do with it.
For whatever reason one night I made this and the kids were apparently feeling a bit adventurous. They tried it and we had happy kiddos all the way around. They were even asking for seconds. I guess the old saying about offering something enough times they will try it, is in fact true.
They've expanded their palettes to include more seafood since then, but we still eat this tasty salmon at least every other month.
Easy Teriyaki Salmon
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb. salmon fillet cut into four pieces (individually frozen salmon pieces/filets are great for this!)
In a small baking dish, combine the soy sauce, oil, brown sugar and garlic; mix well. Place salmon in the baking dish, coating with sauce mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat grill or broiler (both work equally well). Grill (or broil) over medium heat for 3-4 minutes per side or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
Spraying your grill or broiler pan with a light coating of oil (Pam, etc.) to prevent sticking is recommended.
