Baked Soy Sauce Salmon
Prep Time: 5-10 min; add 2 – 3hrs for marinade
Cook Time: 23 min
- Three (3) 4 – 5oz Atlantic salmon fillets, skin on
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 garlic clove (large), minced
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- 3 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp extra virgin police oil
- 1/2 tsp all-purpose flour
- Season salmon fillets with salt, pepper, garlic, and lemon juice. Place salmon in a resealable plastic bag, all facing the same direction.
- In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, extra virgin olive oil, brown sugar, and water. Stir with a whisk until brown sugar is dissolved.
- Set aside 4-5 tbsp mixture in a small bowl. Place in the refrigerator. This will be used to glaze the salmon.
- Pour remaining mixture into salmon bag. Seal bag closed, removing as much air as possible. Place in refrigerator for a minimum of 2-3 hours.
- After salmon has marinated, preheat oven to 425F.
- Remove salmon from plastic bag. Place a large sheet of aluminum foil in an oven-safe dish. Spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray.
- Place salmon in the center of the foil, skin-side down. Create a foil packet around the salmon, leaving a small vent for air. Discard mixture.
- Bake in oven for 15 minutes.
- After 15 minutes, set oven to Broil on high. Open foil packet to expose top of salmon fillets to broiler. Broil for 8 – 10 minutes. Remove immediately.
- Remove set-aside glaze from refrigerator and add 1/2 tsp flour to mixture. Heat in microwave for 10 – 20 seconds or until hot. Mix well until glaze is as thick as gravy. If the gravy is too thick, add 1/4 tsp water.
- Pour glaze on top of salmon.
- Serve immediately!
Pro Tip: If you have leftover baked soy sauce salmon, shred into smaller pieces and refrigerate immediately. Use the extra salmon as a delicious protein in a hearty salad the next day!
