These salmon fillets are grill hot and fast with a sweet whiskey marinade that gives them a lot of great flavor and nice, crisp glaze when grilled.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 4 8-ounce salmon fillets
  • 1/2 cup whiskey
  • 1/4 cup light soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic


Mix together whiskey, soy sauce, orange juice, oil and garlic. Place fish in a shallow dish and pour mixture over. Let salmon sit in the refrigerator for 1 hour or more. Oil cooking grate and preheat grill. Place fish on hot grill and cook for 5 minutes on each side. The salmon is done when it flakes easily and has faded in color. Carefully remove fish from grill and serve.

This is so good, Member Earthwoman56

I had 2 pieces on Alaskan Salmon and the thinner of the two had a wonderful taste. I think next time I would marinate it overnight. I used Jim Beam and doubled the recipe as I had large thick filets. And the thinner one was the best. I also cooked mine on a cedar plank that I soaked for a hour or so before. I hate a fishy taste and it did not have one. GREAT RECIPE! Had company and they loved it as well.
