One of the many fish recipes I found one year during Lent - this one made it easy to give up meat. Very easy, but the taste is out of proportion to the effort.
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons white wine or 2 tablespoons cooking wine
- 2 salmon fillets
- Combine sugar, butter, juice, soy sauce, and wine.
- Place the salmon fillets in a baking dish and cover with the marinade.
- Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3-6 hours.
- Bake 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees, basting every 15 minutes.
This is delicious and SOooo easy to make....thank you, ChrisMc for a wonderful alternative to the "same ole' baked salmon" :0)
I made this last night and it was so good! I made one change since my DD is allergic to dairy. Instead of using butter, I used sesame oil and that really makes it yummy. I served it with Dan's Asian Rice (found on food.com) and on a bed of cooked spinach. Cooked the spinach in sesame oil also with garlic and soy sauce. My kids gobbled it up! Thanks for the recipe!
I don't know what happened. The salmon had no flavor at all. I marinated it for four hours and I basted it as it was baking. I even made made more of the sauce/marinade than called for. I had to end up using a bottled teriyaki marinade to give the salmon flavor. What do you think may have happened?
