This weeknight wonder is great for anyone who is low on time, yet is health conscious. The salmon only needs about 20-30 minutes to marinate and get deep flavor. During that time, prep your veggies and/or starch and you can have a full meal ready in under an hour (including washing up!). You can easily do one fillet, or up to six. Adjust your acids if you desire, use Ponzu instead of Soy Sauce. Put in some cilantro to add freshness or mustard to up the spice. Do your thing and make it yours. Just remember to make more or less marinade depending on how much fish you’re cooking.
For two servings
2 skin-on salmon fillets or steaks (about 5-7 oz each, pinbones removed)
1/3 cup low sodium tamari sauce (or soy sauce)
1/3 cup of rice vinegar
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon of white sugar or honey
1 clove of garlic (smashed and minced)
1 teaspoon of fresh ginger (smashed and minced)
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Place salmon in a prep bowl or dish.
Add tamari, vinegar, sugar, garlic, ginger and pepper to salmon fillets, toss to cover.
After 10-15 minutes, flip fish in marinade.
Once fish is fully marinated (10-15 more minutes) move fillets to a parchment lined jellyroll pan.
Roast for 10-12 minutes for medium rare.
Serve immediately or keep warm up to 30 min in a cooling/slighly open oven.
