Grilled Teriyaki Salmon Collars


I'm going to let you in on a fisherman's secret treat! 

Salmon collars are located between the head and the body of the fish, and are often wasted by large processors.  But fishermen know salmon collars are especially tender and delicous.  This tasty way to use the whole fish is a crowd-pleaser, sweet and caramelized right off the grill! 



12 oz SenaSea Salmon Collars (about 10 collars)
1/2 Cup soy sauce
1/3 Cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1/2 inch knob of ginger (chopped)
2 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp black and/or white sesame seeds

1/2 Cup sweet chili sauce (Mae Ploy or Thai Kitchen)


1) Rinse and pat collars dry

2) Combine all ingredients except sweet chili sauce in a large bowl, whisk to combine

3) Add collars, stir to coat, let sit for about 30 min.


4) Heat grill to med-high and cover with foil.

5) Dip marinated collars in sweet chili sauce and place on foiled grill. 

6) Grill about 7 minutes per side. Serve immediately.

Serves 2. Serve alone as an appetizer, or pair with rice and sautéed veggies for a complete meal.
