  • 6 servings


  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup hot water

  • 1/2 cup Shiraz wine

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 1/3 cup olive oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/3 teaspoon lemon pepper

  • 2 pounds salmon fillets

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoons cold water


  1. In a bowl, mix the brown sugar in the hot water until dissolved. Pour into a large resealable plastic bag, and mix in wine, soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, and lemon pepper. Place salmon in the bag, seal, and marinate 8 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat a grill for high heat.
  3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Reserving marinade, place salmon on the grill, and cook 5 to 8 minutes on each side, or until easily flaked with a fork.
  4. Transfer reserved marinade to a pot. Dissolve the cornstarch in cold water. Bring the marinade to a boil, and stir in cornstarch mixture to thicken. Serve over the salmon or on the side as a dipping sauce.
