Grilled Salmon

This recipe comes from allrecipes.com and had gotten very good reviews. I don't have a grill, so I cooked my salmon in the oven. I wrapped the fillets in a foil packet and cooked the fish at 425 degrees until it was done. Though the recipe didn't wow me (and it may be because I didn't grill the salmon), I did like the end result, and it definitely is simple. I'll continue to tinker with this.

1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets
lemon pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
salt to taste
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil

Season salmon fillets with lemon pepper, garlic powder, and salt. In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and olive oil until sugar is dissolved. Place fish in a large re-sealable plastic bag with the soy sauce mixture, seal, and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Preheat grill for medium heat. Lightly oil grill grate. Place salmon on the preheated grill, and discard marinade. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
