Serves: 2

Marinating Time: 0:30

Grilling Time: 0:10

The butter may be omitted from this recipe if you are strictly trying to avoid fats, but it does give a creamier taste to the salmon. If using a fish basket, you may turn the fish once, halfway through cooking time.


  • 2 8-oz. salmon fillets
  • 3 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • lemon slices


  • In a shallow glass dish, combine the sherry, soy sauce, sesame oil, and ginger. Place the fish in the marinade for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the grill, and brush the grids with vegetable oil. Dot the salmon with butter (optional), and grill on MEDIUM-HIGH for 10 minutes. The skin should easily separate from the fish when it is cooked. Place the salmon on a platter, garnish with fresh lemon slices and serve.
