Grilled Salmon with Lemon, Soy Sauce and Brown Sugar (Airfryer Version)
My whole family love salmon, especially grilled salmon. There are many ways of marinating salmon, and my family's favorite marinade is lemon, soy sauce and brown sugar.
The recipe is so simple, equal part of soy sauce, water and brown sugar, fresh lemon juice and some olive oil. Salmon absorbs and retains the flavors of the marinade, looks gorgeous and tastes delicious.
In normal oven, you usually have to flip salmon during grilling. With Airfryer grill pan, you don't. Just set timer for 8 minutes, and out came the salmon fillets grilled to its perfection! The skin is crispy, the meat is moist and succulent. I am obsessed by my new kitchen helper. It makes cooking more fun and satisfying!
