Kentucky Bourbon Marinade

  • Preparation Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
  • Cook time: 14 minutes
  • Yield: 3 servings


  • 1/4 cup Pineapple Juice
  • 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Kentucky Bourbon
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 lb Salmon Fillets
  • 2 tsp Fresh Chives, snipped


Combine the pineapple juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, bourbon, pepper and garlic powder in a medium bowl. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Add the oil. Be sure all of the skin is removed from the salmon. Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish and pour the bourbon marinade over them, saving a little to brush on the fish as it cooks. Put a lid over the salmon and refrigerate for at least an hour. A few hours is even better. Preheat your barbecue or stove top grill over medium/high heat. Cook the salmon for 5 to 7 minutes per side. while regularly brushing the fillets with marinade, until each fillet is cooked all the way through and flakes easily with a fork. Arrange the fillets on each plate with the chives lightly sprinkled over the top.
