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 salmon 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.
