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