Ingredients

1 green onions/scallions, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tbsp gingerroot, grated 7 g
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce, low-sodium 23 mL
1 tbsp Hoisin sauce 15 mL
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1/2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
300 g salmon fillet
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

Marinate

  1. Finely chop the scallion, mince the garlic, then put them in a shallow dish. Add the grated ginger, soy sauce, Hoisin sauce, oil, lemon juice, and pepper. Whisk using a fork to combine the ingredients. It is not necessary to add any salt since the soy and Hoisin sauces are already rather salty.
  2. Put the salmon in the dish and turn it to coat with the marinade. Cover and let stand either 30 min at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.

Bake

  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC/375ºF.
  2. Remove the salmon from the marinade, letting the excess marinade drip off, then transfer it to a baking sheet, skin side down. Bake in the middle of the oven about 20 min. Alternatively, the salmon may be cooked on an outdoor grill.
  3. Check with a fork to see if the fish is cooked through. Separate and lift the salmon from the skin with a metal spatula and serve (discard skin).

This was a very nice marinade. I used it on rainbow trout, since my husband is a fisherman. It was a hit with our family.

This sauce that goes on the salmon is to die for. Your mouth will thank you. I baked it in the BBQ on a sheet and on tinfoil and kept on basting the salmon with the sauce.

je vais la refaire mais en mettant un peu moins de sauce hoisin. On trouve cela un peu trop salé.

This recipe is awesome. However, we did marinate in the fridge for 24 hours. Definitely a new one in the regular rotation.
