Don’t you just love easy meals, like this amazing Soy Sauce Marinated Wild Caught Salmon?
We absolutely love this one, and it is so easy. You guys probably have all the ingredients have your pantry or fridge. The best thing is that you can use Chicken as alternative or tofu if you don’t eat animal products.
Anyhow, I serve this salmon with many different sides. Sometimes I would serve it with stir-fry, asparagus, cauliflower rice, etc. You may use regular rice, of course, or noodles. It just depends on what you have in your fridge.
With that being said, ever since I changed my lifestyle to low carb, cauliflower does the trick beautifully. Also, I replaced sugar and my beloved honey with organic stevia in dishes like this because I refuse to eat honey imitation.
I mean, I don’t want to deprive myself of certain foods. If I am craving a little butter and honey toast, I will eat it, but that’s not certainly every day. However, I allow myself a little cheat day every now and then. I am only human!
I keep my meals pretty interesting. Rarely I would make the same meal. Maybe that’s the curse of being a full-time food blogger. We definitely love exploring and creating new recipes.
To be honest, here, it was really challenging for me to write down everything on a piece of paper when I started blogging because I usually just add stuff and taste.
I guess that’s also the beauty of cooking. You let your instincts rule and just go with the flow, tasting food without pretty much a recipe.
That’s the reason I stop writing the amount of seasoning (salt, pepper, soy sauce etc.) because we do have different taste. If something is boring and rather plain for me, it might taste good to you.
So this one is amazing. Lots of different flavors going on, but it is savory and very delicious. We just loved this one with any side dishes.

- 2 Garlic Clove minced or sliced
- 1 inch Ginger minced or 1 teaspoon powder

- Blanched Broccoli or Steamed or Roasted Asparagus for veggies

- Juice of 1/2 Lemon about 1 tablespoon
Combine all the ingredients for the marinade, mix well then submerge salmon in it, covering as much as flash as possible. If the salmon got skin, turn the skin up. Marinate for 10 minutes. If the fish is frozen, thaw before marinating.
Preheat oven to 375F/190C Bake Salmon for 20 minutes or until salmon is cooked through. The internal temperature in the thickest part of fillet reads 145F/62C
Serve with whatever you wish, cauliflower rice, side of vegetables or noodles.
Salmon could be grilled or baked in parchment paper.
For the vegetarian Grilled and glazed (FIRM) tofu over rice is fantastic!
It is just fantastic over anything really, even on its own with some side salad or veggie. Serve it with whatever vegetable you have on hand. Steamed, sauteed or blanched.
