Salmon Marinated in Oriental Sauce

I was looking for a different way to prepare salmon fillets and I came across this recipe on
all recipes.com

The recipe calls for cooking the fish on a grill, but I cooked it in a pan.

This is how I prepared it.
12 oz salmon
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1/8 cup oil (I used olive oil, but you can use vegetable oil)
2 garlic gloves minced
salt and pepper to taste

To prepare the marinade stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and oil in a small bowl until sugar is dissolved. Pour over fish and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Lightly oil your pan. Bring heat to medium high. Place salmon in the pan along with the marinade. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. The marinade will reduce and glaze your salmon.

Although I made a rice packet as a side, I just had too fry up some plantians. :)


  1. Que rico! I love allrecipes.com. I cook it in the pan like you did and you can vary the basic ingredients by adding orange juice (instead of the water) and you can also substitute honey for the brown sugar. I also add lots of ginger since we all love that. It's such a versatile recipe!

  2. Hello Maria! I'm sorry I've taken so long to reply... yes I'm going to try it the way you describe. Hopefully I get back into the kitchen full swing!

  3. hey girl, I had salmon for dinner tonight. just plain olive oil and rosemary. I will have to try this recipe. saludos. I haven't been in the blogsphere all summer. Have been 'too busy'. anyways good to see you still around.

  4. Hello Elisa, hope you and your family are well. As you may have noticed this post is from May, so I too have been seriously absent from the blogsphere. It's been a busy year with many changes. Very glad to hear from you!
