Sometimes you just need to take a break from steak and change up your go-to dinnertime meal. That’s where salmon comes in. It’s a great protein that is delicious whether it’s cooked or raw. However, not everyone loves their fish raw, so here’s one of our favorite salmon marinades. It’s really simple and takes very little time to prep and cook. Mix the tasty marinade in a zip lock bag and add the salmon to marinate – less dishes to wash and the salmon is immersed for better flavor. What’s not to love about that? The dishes you have to wash after the meal is over the better. For a real treat, use Wild King Salmon, available fresh for a short time each year, you will quickly understand why it’s called “king” salmon. Don’t have a grill? That’s OK. You can make this salmon recipe all year long by baking it in the oven.
