pietro's barbecued salmon

10 Servings
1 tablespoon Margarine
1 tablespoon Honey
1 tablespoon Brown sugar; packed
2 tablespoons Soy sauce
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Olive oil
1 teaspoon Fresh ginger root; minced, or garlic, minced
3½ pounds Salmon fillet

In a small frying pan over medium heat, stir margarine with honey and brown sugar until margarine melts. Remove from heat; add to pan the soy sauce, dijon mustard, oil and ginger; mix well. Let sauce cool slightly.

Meanwhile, rinse fish and pat dry. To make fish easier to handle when cooked, set it skin side down on a large piece of foil; trim foil or fold under to fit outline of fish. Set fish and foil in a large pan. Stir sauce and spoon evenly over fish; let stand 15 minutes to 1 hour; frequently spoon sauce over fish.

Put salmon with foil on a grill over indirect heat. Cover barbecue with lid, open all vents, and cook until fish is opaque but still moist-looking in the thickest part (cut to test), 20 to 30 minutes. To move fish onto a platter, support with two large spatulas or slip a rimless baking sheet under fish.
