Fishing the Fraser River

I'm lucky enough to have a friend with a beautiful 'Hells Canyon' river boat.  Geoff Bamford, also our mortgage broker takes us up the Fraser river every year for a day of salmon fishing and I must say it's the highlight to my summer.  We almost never come home empty handed and last summer was no exception.  

Here's one of our favorite salmon recipes when we get back home.

1 Cup of Brown Sugar

3/4 cup of Soy Sauce

2 TBS of vegetable or grape seed oil

2 TBS of grated fresh ginger

1 TBS grated orange zest

Handful of chopped cilantro

Mix above ingredients and cover over the salmon for at least 2 hours.  If you're grilling on the BBQ, lie meat side down for 2 minutes to allow grill marks then flip to skin side down until 'just' cooked.  Remember, overdone salmon is never any fun!!!
