Cooking with Ms Moore: Soy-Marinated Pepper-Crusted Salmon

Hey luvs!

Growing up I was never a huge seafood fan, but the past few years I have really began to enjoy it. I really love salmon and i like to make it a weekly dinner staple. If you guys have been following my blog you have probably seen my first salmon recipe I made, which is Mustard Crusted Salmon.. if not then you can check it out here!

I have made this new recipe a few times, this past month and it has been a huge hit! I place the salmon over rice, and serve it with a side of potatoes and vegetables.

The other thing I love about this recipe is that it’s super easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients!


  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 salmon filets
  • coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


i added a dash of oregano as well.


  1. Combine soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil and garlic in a heavy-duty zip-lock bag. Add the salmon and seal the bag. Turn the salmon well, to coat it. Refrigerate for minimum 2 hours and max 8 hours.  
  2.   Remove salmon from marinade, but save the marinade for drizzling on salmon while cooking. Coat fillet side of the salmon with very coarsely ground black pepper.     
  3. Heat oil in saute pan over medium heat. Place salmon skin-side up in pan and saute about 7 minutes. Flip and saute the other side for about 7 minutes. Its done when the fish flakes easily with a fork. 



I hope you enjoy this recipe.. Comment below and let me know what you think!
