It’s winter and nothing like making yourself some grilled, fried or baked fish to warm up the evenings, hope you agree, because we have a super salmon recipe for you. Note: This recipe can be used with any other white fish available in your region. It carries a sweet & sour, tangy flavour and goes well with potato sides!
So, let’s get on with it – the ultimate baked salmon recipe you’ll ever need. Let’s get cooking!
As you already know, it’s baked Salmon time. In Pakistan, the masalaydaar and (a crispy) deep fried fresh water fish is top choice. But every once in a while, we are looking for something different; something juicy and tender.
To fulfil your cravings, we bring you this mouthwatering and flavorful baked dish. Not only is it yummy for your tummy, but it’s really easy to make too!
First and foremost, grease baking pan with olive oil! That’s important because we don’t want the salmon to stick with the bottom of the pan!
Next, marinate the fish.
- 4 Salmon steaks
- 4 tbsp Soya sauce
- Ginger Garlic powder or freshly chopped
- Paprika or chili powder 1 tbsp
- Honey or maple syrup 1 tbs
- Salt to taste
- Lemon juice from 1/2 Lemon
Lay the salmon steaks in the pan. Take the Soy sauce, garlic powder, paprika, honey and salt and mix them well. Then pour the marinade over the fish.
Once that’s done, squeeze a juicy lemon over the marinated salmon. Pop it in an oven preheated to 180°C. Let one side bake for 10 minutes, take it out, flip it over and bake for 10 more minutes.
Enjoy the Fish with… Potatoes
You can serve the salmon with baked sweet potatoes or regular potatoes.
- Chopped potatoes
- Olive oil
- Honey or maple syrup
- Garlic Powder
Pour in olive oil, honey or maple syrup, sprinkle some paprika, salt and garlic powder on the chopped potatoes. Bake them in an oven preheated to 240°C for about 50 minutes.
Enjoy this scrumptious baked salmon! Share it with you your family and friends too! It’s guaranteed they’d ask for more!
