This marinade with a soy sauce/brown sugar base is proof marinades don’t have to be difficult or involved to make. This is very simple and takes little to no time to make but it is oh so tasty! It will make your salmon “pop”!
Ingredients (serves 6)
2 pounds salmon fillets.
lemon pepper to taste.
garlic powder to taste.
sea salt to taste.
1/3 cup soy sauce.
1/3 cup brown sugar.
1/3 cup water.
1/4 cup vegetable oil.
Season salmon fillets with lemon pepper, garlic powder, and salt.
In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and vegetable oil until sugar is dissolved. Place fish in a large resealable plastic bag with the soy sauce mixture, seal, and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Preheat grill for medium heat.
Lightly oil grill grate. Place salmon on the preheated grill, and discard marinade. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
Place the salmon fillet in a glass, ceramic, or stainless-steel roasting dish and season it to taste with salt and pepper. Whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice and drizzle the mixture evenly over the salmon. Let it stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.
In a small bowl, stir together the green onions, dill, and parsley. Scatter the herb mixture over the salmon fillet, turning it so that both sides are generously coated with the green herbs. Pour the wine around the fish fillet.
Roast the salmon for 10 to 12 minutes, until almost cooked in the center at the thickest part. The center will be firm with just a line of uncooked salmon in the very center.
Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Cut the salmon crosswise into serving pieces and serve hot with lemon wedges.
