Marinated Oven Baked Wild Sockeye Salmon Fillet

Baked Wild Salmon Fillets
We are trying to eat more wild salmon. This is in part due to the fact I am now doing what my sister does...buying the big bag of frozen wild sockeye salmon from Costco.  Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon is supposed to be very healthy for us. It is full of Omega-3, a good fat and less likely to be contaminated with Mercury, etc.

The following is the recipe I created based in part on a friend's grilled salmon recipe.


3 individual wild Alaskan Sockeye salmon fillets (one per person)
1 large piece of fresh ginger (peeled and sliced)
1/4 cup sliced fresh green onions or chives
3 large garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup Shoyu (Soy Sauce, I used Kikkoman)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a Pyrex baking dish, place all the ingredients except for the salmon fillets.  Blend well.  Coat both sides of the fillets with the marinate.  Place the fillets in baking dish with the skin side up.  Bake for approximately 20 to 30 minutes or until the skin is crispy and browned.  Serve with rice and vegetables such as wilted Kale or Swiss Chard.
