Recipe from Harris Teeter's Fresh Catch Newsletter The name sockeye comes from an attempt to translate the word suk-kegh from British Columbia's native Coast Salish language. Suk-kegh means red fish. The sockeye, also called red or blueback salmon, is among the smallest of the seven Pacific salmon species, but their succulent, bright-orange meat is prized above all others. They range in size from 24 to 33 inches in length and weigh between 5 and 15 lbs.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine limeade, olive oil, soy sauce, garlic and rosemary in a flat dish or gallon size zip-top plastic bag.

  • Rinse the fresh Alaskan sockeye salmon fillets under cold water, pat dry with a paper towel.

  • Place salmon in the marinade, turning several times to coat. Cover, if needed, and refrigerate for one hour.

  • Preheat grill/coals to medium-high heat. Remove salmon from marinade and place on a well oiled grill, 4 to 5 inches from heat.

  • Cook, turning once, 8 to 10 minutes. Cook just until the fillets begin to flake.
