  • 1 lb. salmon fillets boneless
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce your favourite kind
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 green onion sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 large (gallon) freezer bag or reusable silicone bag


Assembly instructions:

  • Place the salmon fillets in a large resealable freezer bag.
  • Add the other ingredients and squish gently to combine.
  • Remove the excess air, seal, and freeze.

Barbecue cooking instructions:

  • Thaw. The sauce marinates the salmon as it thaws.
  • Heat barbecue to medium heat.
  • Grill fish for 6 minutes on each side on greased barbecue rack or on a cedar plant on the grill. Turn the fish occasionally. The salmon should flake easily when done.

Oven cooking instructions:

  • Thaw and the salmon will marinate in the sauce as it thaws.
  • Place salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet lined. Bake at 400° for about 20 minutes. The exact cooking time will vary depending on the salmon thickness. It will flake easily when done.


Pro tip: If you like, you can slice the salmon filets into portions before adding to the freezer bag.
