This recipe is so delicious, yet it takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. It's a perfect dinner for a busy night! For even more flavor, marinate for up to one hour.
- 12 ounces salmon fillets (about 2 fillets)
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ginger
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Mix together soy sauce, lemon juice, and spices.
- Place salmon in a shallow baking dish, and pour liquid mixture over the filets.
- Bake about 25 minutes or until salmon is flaky.
I was hesitant about the ingredient combo, but this is ridiculously good. I've been cooking salmon at 400 degrees, but this low & slow method is SO much better. It makes for perfectly moist but not undercooked fish every time. I make this about once a week now. I do use about half the soy sauce and am happy with the results.
I used less soy sauce then the recipe states, so that it wouldn't be too salty. My salmon was fairly thick, so it took longer then the 25 minutes, which is fine. This is definitely an easy, no fail recipe, however, so I will add it to my cook book for future reference. Thank you.
I'm not big on seafood and have never really cared for salmon. This recipe changed my opinion; I actually went back for seconds.
