Salmon (or Halibut) Marinade

Years ago, a friend gave me her family cookbook for Christmas.  I asked her what recipes she liked the best in it.  The first one she mentioned was this salmon marinade.  I've been making it ever since.  It's delicious and, when grilled, the salmon has that sweet, crusty taste, but is moist and delicious on the inside.  We did the filet that is pictured above in the smoker grill, so that's why it's darker, but I think I prefer this particular marinade cooked on the regular grill.  But either way, it is yummy.
Salmon Marinade
1 cup brown sugar
4 Tablespoons molasses
2 whole lemons, halved and squeezed
3/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
8 whole garlic cloves
1/4 cup oil

Put all in a blender and blend until the garlic is completely chopped.  Put the salmon steaks in a gallon ziplock and pour the marinade over.  Mix around with your hands.  Marinade overnight or for at least several hours.  Grill.  Brush Marinade over as it grills.
