Salmon in a Citrus Marinade

02 Apr

Ingredients:  serves 4 people

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1/2 cup juice from California Mandarins “Cuties” or you can substitute juice from oranges.
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 2 Tb soy sauce (Paleo followers substitute a minced anchovy for this ingredient)
  • 2 Tb Olive oil
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 3 Tb fresh parsley, chopped

In a bowl combine all ingredients except the salmon fillets and stir until well blended. Put the salmon fillets in a gallon zip lock bag, add the marinade, seal and refrigerate at least 3 hours or more before cooking.

Preheat oven to 400 and spray a large baking dish with Pam Spray. Place the salmon fillets in the dish, drizzle some of the marinade over the salmon and bake for 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Generally I have to bake mine for 20 minutes as our fillets are usually 1 1/2″ inches in thickness. Bake the fish until it flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Suggestions:  Feel free to substitute the Salmon with Trout, Halibut, Bass, Cod or Catfish if you desire. We just love Salmon so that’s what I usually have in the house.
