Marinated Salmon

I wanted to try a new way to make my salmon. We love salmon in my house, and we have it frequently, and I needed a new easy recipe. I found a picture on Pinterest where they used soy and brown sugar, witch made me think of the marinade from my angry tacos, from where I got my inspiration.

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 pieces salmon, serving size
  • lemon pepper
  • salt

Marinade:

  • ⅓ cup (80 ml) soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup (60 g) brown sugar
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) warm water
  • ⅓ cup (80 ml) grape seed oil
  • grated ginger, to taste
  • ½ jalapeño pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

Directions:

Marinade:

In a bowl, whisk the cilantro, brown sugar, oil, soy sauce, jalapeños, and coriander to blend well. Reserve ¼ cup of the marinade for dressing the slaw. Pour the rest of the marinade into a ziplock bag and place the salmon in the  marinade and turn to coat. Marinate for at least 20 minutes or up to 2 hours in refrigerator. 

Preheat stove grill for medium heat, and lightly oil grill grates. (I used a Le Creuset cast iron grill)

Place salmon on hot grill. Cook salmon for 4-6 minutes per side, or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to overcook the salmon, nobody like a piece of dry fish.

Serve with an easy slaw a la this one.

 

The danish version:

Marineret Laks

Ingredienser:

  • 2 stykker laks
  • citronpeber
  • salt

Marinade:

  • 80 ml soyasauce
  • 60 g brun farin
  • 60 ml varmt vand
  • 80 ml vindruekerne olie
  • revet ingefær, alt efter smag
  • ½ jalapeño 
  • 2 tsk frisk koriander

Fremgangsmåde:

Marinaden:

Bland alle ingredienser i en skål, og rør indtil sukkeret er opløst. Hvis du laver en "coleslaw" så tag ½-¾ dl marinade fra til dressing. 

Kom marinaden i en frysepose, og kom laksen i. Lad fisken marinere i mindst 20 minutter, eller op til 2 timer i køleskabet.

Varm en grillpande op til den er godt varm. Pensel panden med lidt olie og steg laksen 4-6 minutter på hver side, eller indtil laksen ikke længere er gennemsigtige lyserød. Pas på med ikke at give laksen for meget, da den bliver kedelig når den er tør.

Server laksen med en hurtig “coleslaw" evt, den jeg bruger til Angry Tacos. (Kinakål, gulerod, forårsløg, jalapeño, frisk koriander og den ubrugte marinade som dressing)
