Salmon Twist

Salmon Twist

Kelly Robertson

"A simple soy sauce and brown sugar marinade, with hints of lemon and garlic, are the perfect salty-sweet complement to rich salmon fillets. Adding vinegar or fish sauce and white pepper will emerge new flavors to create a Filipino or Thai twist! For more of a twist, use other types of fish, like cod, catfish or tilapia. You can even use it on chicken! Trust the cooking of the fillets and do not be tempted to open or you will lose valuable time and heat."

  1. Combine water, soy sauce, brown sugar, olive oil, lemon juice, cornstarch, garlic powder, and black pepper together in a saucepan; cook over medium-high heat until sauce is thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Arrange salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet. Brush sauce on both sides of each fillet. Fold aluminum foil loosely over fillets and seal edges together creating a packet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes.
  5. Bring remaining marinade to a boil and serve alongside cooked salmon.

  • Want to spice it up? Add 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne red pepper.
  • Grapeseed oil can be substituted for the olive oil.
  • Cooking on the grill: Prepare as directed and create foil pouch to marinate according to your schedule. Cook on grill-top in the pouch for 12 to 15 minutes and at the very end take the fillets out and give them a grilled flavor.

This sauce is certainly yummy. I wanted it a little thicker so I added 1 more teaspoon of cornstarch to a little water and stir in to hot mixture. Another note; the cornstarch should be mixed wi...

This was great! The only thing I changed was that I used lime juice instead of lemon as that's what I had on hand. I will be making this again. Delicious :).

Enjoyed the glaze. I use it on salmon and chicken as well and play with the seasonings.

It's pretty good. I agree with the lime over the lemon. I also added seafood seasoning to the fish and some fresh garlic minced up.

Best sauce ever.

We enjoyed this a lot. Prep is easy and clean-up is a breeze. Will make again.

Brilliant very easy added some spicy herbs for me personal choice.

Easy. Yummy!

Heavens to Betsy is this a tasty recipe! Followed the instructions and loved the end result. We baked our salmon in tin foil packets for easy clean up (yay!).
