Baked Soy Sauce Salmon

Serves: 3
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


  1. Season salmon fillets with salt, pepper, garlic, and lemon juice. Place salmon in a resealable plastic bag, all facing the same direction.
  2. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, extra virgin olive oil, brown sugar, and water. Stir with a whisk until brown sugar is dissolved. 
  3. Set aside 4-5 tbsp mixture in a small bowl. Place in the refrigerator. This will be used to glaze the salmon. 
  4. 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.
  5. After salmon has marinated, preheat oven to 425F.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Bake in oven for 15 minutes.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Pour glaze on top of salmon.
  12. 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!
