1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons peeled, minced gingerroot
2 teaspoons minced green onions
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
Dash of dried crushed red pepper
2 (4-ounce) salmon steaks (1/2 inch thick)
Vegetable cooking spray
2 tablespoons nonfat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon peeled, grated gingerroot
1/4 teaspoon crushed garlic
Fresh cilantro (optional)


Combine first 8 ingredients in a large heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bag; add salmon steaks. Seal bag, and marinate steaks in refrigerator 2 hours, turning bag occasionally. Remove salmon steaks from marinade, reserving marinade.

Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-hot coals (350° to 400°). Place steaks on rack; grill, uncovered, 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting frequently with reserved marinade.

Combine mayonnaise and next 3 ingredients, stirring well. Top each salmon steak with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture. Garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired.
