Grilled Salmon In Spicy Korean Marinade

"Grilled Salmon in Spicy Korean Marinade. So quick and easy."

Recipe Intro From limjenjen

This marinade is absolutely delicious! If you haven't cooked with gochu-jang (Korean red chili paste) I suggest you give it a try! It's spicy, rich in flavor and just a touch of funk (the really good kind). Warning: It's habit forming.
