  • In a large bowl combine minced garlic, grated ginger, chopped cilantro, brown sugar, lime zest, lime juice, rice wine, low sodium soy sauce, and vegetable oil. Reserve 1/4 cup of this sauce for later.
  • Place the salmon fillets into the bowl and light turn them to coat completely. Cover with plastic and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  • Fire up the grill to medium high heat and cook the fish on both sides. Grilling time may vary depending on the thickness of each fillet.
  • Once the salmon is fully cooked, transfer to a plate and drizzle the reserved marinade over each fillet. Serve hot.
