Full Answer

To make Firecracker Salmon, the following ingredients are combined: 1/4 cup of peanut oil, 2 tablespoons each of balsamic vinegar and soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of chopped green onions, one minced clove of garlic, 3/4 teaspoon of grated ginger, and 2 tablespoons each of brown sugar and red pepper flakes. This mixture is put into a large resealable bag along with four 6-ounce portions of salmon. This is placed in a refrigerator to marinate for one to two hours, then cooked on a hot grill for four to five minutes on each side, or until it flakes easily with a fork.

Honey-Ginger Grilled Salmon is made in a similar way and uses the same amount of salmon, which can be divided however the cook sees fit. It also calls for the combining of all ingredients in a resealable bag. The marinade for this recipe is made using 1 teaspoon of ginger, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/3 cup of soy sauce, 1/3 cup of orange juice, 1/4 cup of honey and one chopped green onion. The salmon in this recipe is allowed to marinate for 15 to 30 minutes, then grilled on medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes per inch of thickness or until flaky.
