Growing up I did not like any seafood of any kind. After living in Maryland for a year and a half, I learned to love crab. But I still don’t like shrimp. And I know some of you are going to give it to me good over this, but I don’t like lobster. I branched out to other types of fish and recently fell in love with Salmon. Deeply in love with salmon. Head over heels in love with salmon. I am enjoying trying out methods preparing and cooking this wonderful fish. So when I came upon this pin, it just called to me. The pin says, “Soy Sauce & Brown Sugar Salmon Marinade. Wrap it in foil and bake at 425° for approx. 15 minutes. Moist and delicious.”.
It kind of baffled me because the pin said to wrap it in foil, but the salmon in the picture had grill marks. Maybe it was grilled after baking? When I made this, I was a little disappointed when I opened the foil packet after baking and could understand wanting to grill it. It was sort of pale and icky looking. Then I flipped the salmon over and found that each slice had a beautiful caramelized crust on bottom.
The time for baking really depends on how big a slice of salmon you are using. Next time I would use bigger slices of salmon. My whole family liked it, and felt there was not enough. I should have made bigger slices and MORE of them! The original pin is from allrecipes.com and calls for grilling. Baking it in a foil packet is an idea that came from one of the comments. I am confident it would be delicious either way. If you are looking for an easy to prepare and cook salmon, this is a solid recipe. It is simple and it’s presentation is elegant. Give it a try!
