Rinse the salmon and pat dry with paper towels.

Salmon marinade. And heres what goes in the salmon marinade. When i made this soy sauce and brown sugar salmon marinade i was a little disappointed when i opened the foil packet after baking and could understand wanting to grill it. It adds a savoury sweet garlic flavour to the salmon and makes it beautifully caramelised. Simply store the marinade in the fridge until youre ready to add your salmon.

Meanwhile heat a wok with the remaining marinade and the stock add the baby corn and broccoli stir fry for about 5 mins then add the pak choi and cook for 2 mins more. Add the rest of the ingredients to the salmon stir to mix well so the salmon are nicely coated with all the ingredients. Cover and grill over medium heat 10 to 20 minutes brushing 2 or 3 times with marinade until salmon flakes easily with fork. No longer than an hour or the salt in the soy will begin to cook the meat.

Place salmon skin side down on grill. Add the ginger and garlic to the salmon and gently rub them on the salmon. Heat coals or gas grill. This super easy salmon marinade is heavy on the lemon garlic and fresh and dried herbs.

The salmon sits in the marinade for up to 6 hours then is grilled or broiled to perfection. We like ours slightly sweet with honey and use coconut aminos instead of a traditional soy sauce. Remove salmon from marinade. You can use the marinade to flavor small salmon fillets or try marinating a larger side of salmon.

Heat the grill to high. Grill bake or grill salmon for about 4 minutes per side when salmon flakes when pierced with a fork. Because its salty it acts as the brine injecting flavour and juiciness into the salmon flesh. It was sort of pale and icky looking.

Soy sauce is the key ingredient here. Mix oil soy sauce scallions garlic and ginger to make a marinade pour over salmon and marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator. Then i flipped the salmon over and found that each slice had a beautiful caramelized crust on bottom. Lay the salmon on a non stick baking tray and grill for 5 6 mins each side or until cooked through.

It gives it a little bit of a salty sweet combination that makes for the perfect salmon. Discard any remaining marinade. The marinade for this salmon is a mixture of olive oil honey soy sauce lemon zest and herbs. This marinade can be made up to 3 days before you plan to use it.

I intentionally left lemon juice out of this recipe because acids like lemon juice can actually cook the salmon as it sits in the marinade. Set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes or best for 2 hours in the fridge. You can use other types of seafood in this marinade such as halibut swordfish shrimp and scallops.
