Bourbon Brown Sugar Salmon

This is my mom's famous recipe for copper river salmon! This recipe is by far my favorite salmon recipe. Everyone asks for the recipe as soon as they try it. We typically make it in the summer, but lately I have been thinking it would be fun to change up our Christmas Eve Dinner tradition and go with a big family style seafood/Italian feast!  It is the only salmon marinade you will ever need.. trust me.
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons bourbon
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
3 green onions, finely chopped
1. mix brown sugar, bourbon, oil and soy sauce in bowl. 
2. chop green onions and mix into sauce. 
3. pour marinade over salmon in baking dish, cover with plastic wrap and marinade for 20 minutes in fridge.
4. place salmon in non-stick fish basket (this will be your best friend) and place on grill. 
5. save the leftover marinade to pour over finished salmon.
6. grill for about 7 minutes on each side.
7. transfer salmon to serving dish, pour leftover marinade on top.
8. eat. yum.

What are some of your Christmas Eve Traditions? I'd love to hear!
