1/3 c brown sugar
1/3 c soy sauce
1/3 c water
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 lemon, juice only
1 t cornstarch (for the sauce)
1 T butter (for the sauce)
Mix together everything but the cornstarch and butter in a bowl or food safe ziplock bag, add the salmon (skin side up so the meat is in the marinade), and let it sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Remove the salmon from the marinade, and cook it according to your preference. I prefer to grill it on the charcoal grill, but baked or broiled would be great, too! While the salmon is cooking, pour the marinade into a saucepan, add the butter, and bring it to a boil. Let the marinade boil and reduce, stirring occasionally, for at least 5 minutes. Wisk in the teaspoon of cornstarch, mix it completely, and remove from heat.
Pour the sauce over the cooked salmon, and serve.
I like to serve this with rice to soak up all the extra sauce. Mmm...
