Quick & Easy Salmon Marinade

29 Oct

Last night I grilled salmon and I used this quick and easy marinade…try it out

Ingredients

  • Liquid Aminos* (this is a healthy alternative to Soy Sauce – all natural and no preservatives)
  • 4 large garlic cloves – peeled and smushed
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • Freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  • Combine the salmon, liquid aminos, garlic, EVOO, and pepper in a ziplock bag or tupperware if you want to be eco-friendly and let the salmon marinate for at least 15 minutes before grilling – I typically use about a 2 to 1 ratio between the aminos and EVOO and the amount of pepper is up to you – I only like a little
  • Make sure to leave the salmon out while its marinating to bring the fish to room temperature before grilling – this will help the fish to cook more evenly

I grilled my salmon over medium heat – skin side down for the first 7 minutes or so and then on the other side for another 2-3 minutes

I served mine with roasted potatoes and roasted brussels sprouts

*I have included an image of the Liquid Aminos below in case you’re interested. Of course you can always use soy sauce in the marinade if you prefer – either way is delish…
