I was so happy to get back in the kitchen after recovering from camping to make dinner this weekend. Last night I wanted to cook salmon because it's been a while since we ate any. I tried this recipe I found on my many travels online. While mine didn't turn out with exactly the same carmelization, I didn't mind at all. The flavour was amazing, though possibly a bit salty. I think I'd use a little less soy sauce next time. Shown with fresh vegetables and a brown rice topped with feta/dill cheese sauce.
680g. package of salmon fillets
1/3 c. soy sauce
1/3 c. water
1/3 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. oil
Mix the brown sugar with the liquids. Place the salmon in a shallow dish with a lip, then pour over the marinade. Sprinkle with garlic powder and lemon pepper. Flip after a while to ensure the salmon soaks up as much marinade as possible.
We were going to bbq, but then I sent my husband out to do something else (and that's his job), so I used my grill pan instead. Heat up your pan, then add some of the salmon- don't crowd. Cook on one side until browning, then carefully flip over and cook on the other side.
Verdict: Both my husband and first son said "This is DELICIOUS". My second son got a first bite with peppercorns on it and wouldn't try it again after that, so I will keep one without lemon pepper on it next time I make this. I really enjoyed it, except after about half of my piece I found it to be too salty.
