You've Gotta Try This!

We just finished our dinner and I could not help but share this simple marinade to use when cooking salmon or in our case this evening, Steelhead Trout. I'm confident this would be delightful on any piece of fresh fish! I sampled this recipe a few weekends ago from a family friend and it was so tasty! I wrote it down and I must say, another success in our kitchen. I love complicated dinners and spending time in the kitchen, but often times an easy meal that takes less than 30 minutes in the kitchen can taste just as good as a five star dining experience. We enjoyed our fresh fish with Moroccan cous cous tossed with sauteed red peppers, red onions and zucchini, olive oil and then seasoned with cumin and sea salt. Another fast fix and with a little Moroccan flair, and I'm sure Aladdin & Jasmine would approve.

Speedy Salmon Fillet

3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoons fresh snipped basil
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush 1/3 marinade over the fish. Cook for 5 minutes, remove from oven and brush more marinade on the fish, leaving enough for one more brushing. Remove after 10 minutes and brush with the rest of the marinade. Cook for 5 more minutes.


  1. Aladdin and Jasmine! Haha! Sounds tasty! I wonder if this would be good with Shrimp?
