Instructions
  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan on the stove. Heat over medium high heat until mixture starts to boil. Remove from heat.
  2. Let mixture cool for 5-10 minutes. Then pour over salmon and let marinate for 10 minutes (or up to all day, if placed in the refrigerator).
  3. Once marinated, place salmon on a greased baking sheet (skin side down) and bake in an oven heated to 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until fish is opaque and flaky throughout.
  4. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

If you prefer to grill, here’s how:¬†Brush the cooking grate with oil, then place the salmon, skin-side-down, on the grill and cover. Cook, without flipping, until the salmon just starts to release its fat (this looks almost like mayonnaise¬†oozing out) and/or the flesh flakes easily. Most 1-inch thick flilets will take 10 to 15 minutes. Allow another 10 minutes for each extra inch of thickness. Use a spatula to remove the fish from the grill and serve immediately.

If your salmon doesn’t have skin: place salmon on a piece of greased aluminum foil a few inches larger than your piece of salmon.
