Show Dad Your Grill Skills!

This month brings many great things, including Father’s Day AND the first day of summer – finally! What better way to celebrate both than with a delicious meal on the grill? Let Dad take a seat this time and show him your grillin’ skills.

Grilled Whiskey Salmon 

These salmon fillets are marinated in a sweet whiskey sauce, resulting in a delicious flavour and crispy glaze when done on the grill. I like to serve this salmon with grilled veggies and mini potatoes.


4 (8-ounce) salmon fillets
1/2 cup whiskey (any whiskey works – I like to use a maple whiskey!)
1/4 cup soy sauce (use a light version for less sodium)
1/3 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tsp chili paste
2 cloves garlic (minced)


  • Mix whiskey, soy sauce, orange juice, oil, chili paste and garlic in a bowl.
  • Place salmon in a shallow dish and pour mixture over top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour or until ready to grill.
  • Preheat grill for medium-high heat. 
  • Once heated, oil grill grates to create a non-stick surface. Another option is to place a piece of tin foil on the grill.
  • Place salmon on hot grill and cook for 5 minutes on each side. I like to use two spatulas to flip to prevent the salmon from falling apart.
  • You’ll know it’s done when it flakes easily, has faded in color, and reaches an internal temperature of at least 145 F. 


Happy Father’s Day to all the great Dads out there!
