Important Grilling Tips for Marinades

Always blend marinades in a blender so they combine thoroughly. If the ingredients of a marinade are only casually mixed together, they may separate during the marinating process and flavor your grilled salmon unevenly.

Keep some of your marinade on hand while grilling. It can be brushed onto the salmon while its cooking to add more of the marinade's flavor.

If you want to serve the marinade as a topping for your fish it should first be boiled down to cook the raw fish juices it now contains. Or you could just set some aside before you marinade the fish.
