Marinated Salmon

So after making Parmesan Crusted Tilapia and having it turn out so good, I decided to try cooking another type of fish--salmon.  The last time I ate salmon was in salmon burger form a few years ago, and, expecting it to taste like a hamburger, I doused it in ketchup and mustard, only to discover that it wasn't hamburger-like at all.

This time around I went with a Marinated Salmon recipe that sounded good.  Anything with brown sugar in it automatically gets a few points from me because as anyone can see just by reading a few of my recipes, I use it in just about everything I can.

For this recipe, I mixed soy sauce, melted margarine, olive oil, honey, brown sugar, dried minced onion, and some minced garlic together in a container with a lid, then placed the salmon fillets in it.  I scooped the marinade over the fillets to coat them, then covered it and placed it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

I arranged the salmon on a baking sheet lined with foil and baked the fish at 400 degrees F for about 12 minutes.  Like the Parmesan Crusted Tilapia, it was was easy to tell that the fish was cooked throughout because it flaked apart and the salmon had turned a lighter pink.

Oh my goodness, that was one heck of a marinade.  Brown sugar never fails to make food taste extra awesome.  The marinade turned into a sweet glaze and soaked right into the fish.  I was really impressed and my husband demolished his!
