This Soy Sauce and Brown Sugar Salmon Marinade is not only an easy weeknight meal, but elegant enough to impress guests. Carmelized, healthy, and delicious!
Growing up I did not like any seafood of any kind. After living in Maryland for a year and a half, I learned to love crab. But I still don’t like shrimp. And I know some of you are going to give it to me good over this, but I don’t like lobster.
However, I branched out to other types of fish and recently fell in love with Salmon. Deeply in love with salmon. Head over heels in love with salmon.
I am enjoying trying out methods preparing and cooking this wonderful fish. So when I came upon this pin, it just called to me. The pin says, “Soy Sauce and Brown Sugar Salmon Marinade. Wrap it in foil and bake at 425° for approx. 15 minutes. Moist and delicious.”
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 was sort of pale and icky looking. Then I flipped the salmon over and found that each slice had a beautiful caramelized crust on bottom.
The original pin is from allrecipes.com and calls for grilling. Baking it in a foil packet is an idea that came from one of the comments. I am confident it would be delicious either way.
