Salmon Twist

Rated as 4.61 out of 5 Stars

"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.

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 :).

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.

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

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

Made it just as the recipe called for and it was excellent
