Mojo Salmon marinade - add some Zip to your Salmon

I first developed this salmon marinade recipe when grilling salmon on a cedar plank.

The crushed pineapple and honey provide the sweetness while the Jack Daniels gives it the zip you need in life!

The best grilled salmon recipe always starts with this marinade for salmon.

Ideally you'll want to marinate a large salmon filet 4 hours before grilling.

With this marinade there's no boiling so it's quick and easy to prepare.

Salmon, like most fish and seafood, quickly absorbs flavors from the marinade. Don't leave the fish in this marinade recipe more then 4 hours or it will start to acid cook.

I've also found this marinade works very nicely with pork too. Check out these Mojo Barbeque Pork Ribs, you'll think you're at a Hawaiian beach party!
