Bourbon Lemon Salmon

Rita Lenes of Washington state says that this is one of her favorite marinated dishes. “The lemon and onion slices add an extra touch of flavor”.

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 Tablespoons bourbon
3 Tablespoons chopped green onion
3 Tablespoon vegetable oil
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Salmon fillet (1 to 1 – 1/2 pounds)
1 small lemon, sliced very thin
2 onion slices, separated into rings

In a small bowl combine brown sugar, bourbon, green onion, oil and sauce. Place salmon in plastic bag set into a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the salmon; close the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Turn bag once halfway though the marinade time.

Remove the salmon fillets from the bag. Discard the marinade. Place salmon skin side down on the center of an oiled cooking grate or fish screen. Top with lemon and onion slices. Grill, turning once, 15 to 20 minutes or until the fish flakes when tested with a fork.
