This salmon is so easy, you won't believe how delicious it is. I serve it with rice prepared with chicken broth and a little onion instead of plain water and buttery steamed broccoli with sliced almonds.

  • Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Remove salmon from the marinade and arrange on a baking sheet. Discard the marinade.

  • Cook the salmon under the broiler until lightly browned and the flesh flakes easily with a fork, 7 to 10 minutes. Allow the salmon to rest 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

Amazing salmon recipe! I did not marinade the salmon because I was short on time, but otherwise I followed the recipe. I put the marinade in a jar and shook it to blend the oil and soy sauce, then poured it over the fish before broiling. When the salmon was finished I crumbled it over a salad of baby spring greens, green peas, and mandarin oranges. I added more soy sauce and oil to the remaining marinade and used it as a dressing over the salad; it was delicious! I will make this again! Read More

Quick, easy and delish! Easy list of ingredients, plus the advantage of being able to marinate it up to 24 hours before, if necessary. I baked my salmon at 400 degrees for about 12-15 minutes. DH asked for seconds! Just be sure to line the pan with foil prior to baking or broiling. Read More

This recipe was great, it allowed me to balance my busy day and still put a great meal on the table for my man. I would advise to not drizzle too much extra marinade on the fish as it will catch on fire while broiling. Otherwise, a great marinade and easy peasy. Read More

This was really good. I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I made some changes. I left out the oil and used orange juice instead. I also added some crushed ginger. Very yummy Read More

I have never made salmon before so I was looking for an easy recipe. This marinade really made the dish! All the ingredients are things that I always have. I let my salmon marinade over night and all day and I'm not kidding this is the best salmon I have EVER had! It was so moist! I cooked it in the oven and broiled it the last few minutes to crisp it up. I forgot the lemon pepper but it was still delicious! Read More

Oh my goodness. So tasty. As suggested by a reviewer i served over a bed of lettuce with peas and mandarin oranges and poured some marinade over the top. It was the perfect flavor. We were all licking our plates. Read More

Made this recipe using some Alaskan salmon caught by a friend. Was looking for something easy, and using my existing pantry staples. Not sure what the "salty" reviewer was talking about. The marinade gave a subtle, sweet flavor, while still letting the natural salmon flavor come through. Not at all salty. Of course, I added twice as much garlic, and cooked the fish on the grill. Served it with grilled asparagus. Truly delicious, as the name says. Will definitely be added to my recipe box! Read More

Awesome. Will def make again and again! I baked at 400 for about 16 minutes and used salmon fillets- no skin. Only marinaded about 3 hours (in a ziploc bag) and it was still wonderful. Read More
