Easy Marinated Salmon Recipe: This Fish Recipe Is a Game Changer

I love this marinated fish recipe! You would think this simple salmon recipe would be salty because of the soy sauce, but think again. Marinating the salmon imparts a rich flavor and changes the texture of the fish. It's is delicious and will change the way you think about cooking salmon. 

The salmon filet is marinated in lemon  juice, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, olive oil and black pepper. That's it. After hours of sitting in this flavorful marinade, it's baked for about 20 minutes. So simple yet so tasty. 

This easy marinated fish recipe is great for a busy weeknight dinner or even a romantic dinner. Serve this quick salmon with your favorite side dishes. I like to serve it with quinoa and a roasted vegetable

We enjoy it! Hope your family does as well. I had salmon last night. Just sprinkled it with a little Cajun seasoning and drizzled it with a little olive oil. Threw it in the oven for about 10 minutes, then drizzled it with some honey and baked a few minutes more. Was really good. sherry bracy

This is one of my favorite ways to make salmon. The first time I made it, I was afraid it might be salty, but it's not. Marinating it changes the texture. It's really good! Let me know how you liked it.
