Thai Marinated Baked Salmon

A great recipe to add some flavor into baked salmon, and it's easy to do too!

  • Salmon fillets
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger chopped
  • small bunch cilantro
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 limes, 2 sliced, 1 cut into wedges
  • 3 TBS honey
  • 1 tsp sesame seed oil
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 3 or 4 dried red chilies (optional)
This marinade needs no salt due to the saltiness of the soy sauce. Put all ingredients except salmon in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Omit hot peppers if you do not want the dish to be hot. Put salmon fillets skin-side down in a roasting pan and pour marinade over. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours. The longer it marinates the stronger the flavor.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Remove fish from marinade and put in a clean roasting pan. Or bake fish in the marinade for a more intense flavor. Bake for 15 minutes, serve with lime wedges.
