Easy Barbequed Salmon

Easy Barbequed Salmon
from Favorites

3 pounds of salmon fillets
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Place salmon, skin side down on grill--or place on sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil on grill.  Mix remaining ingredients and use to baste salmon frequently.  Cook until salmon changes color.  Turn over and peel off skin.  Baste frequently and cook until done, about 15-20 minutes.

I am in love with this salmon recipe.  It is incredibly easy and extremely good.  I usually don't cook mine on the grill, but if I do, I place aluminum foil down to avoid the fish from ticking to the grill and flaking all over the place.  I prefer the oven method for this.  I place my salmon fillets down on a baking sheet lined in parchment paper.  I pour most of the sauce over the fillets and cook in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until fish is cooked through.  Make sure you do not over cook the fish.  It needs to be just cooked through so that the fish is slightly flaky.  I buy the bag of frozen salmon fillets at Costco.  There is no skin on the one's on buy.  I use four of them for this recipe.  They are individually wrapped and the whole bag usually has 7 fillets in it.  The bag will run you around $20.  Fish is usually more expensive than other meats, but it is so good for you.  We eat fish about once a week.  My boys each ate a fillet by themselves.  That is how good this stuff is.  I served mine with roasted fingerling potatoes and asparagus.  Recipe soon to come.
All of my fillets after they had baked in the oven for 20 minutes.  Mine were slightly frozen, so I cooked them an extra 5 minutes and they turned out great.  Before I serve, I take some of the juices that the fish cook in and spoon over the fish to add even more flavor.
