This just might be the easiest, most flavorful salmon you will ever make. Create a honey-sweetened, ginger, garlic, miso and soy sauce marinade which creates a nice crisp and caramelized crust after roasting. Once you cut into your salmon filet you end up with lovely juicy and tender meat. It’s almost like a piece of candy melting in your mouth.
The marinade is so easy to make. Baking salmon is really easy and requires little hands-on effort. Your baking time can vary depending on how thick your salmon filet is. The standard rule of thumb calls 10 minutes per inch of thickness. And that’s the secret to an extremely juice and flaky salmon.
I discovered that I like this recipe far more if I used a thinner salmon filet. That means more crust and more flavor.
The recipe is also perfect to serve to guests. You can of course marinated the fish overnight. You will just spend 1 minute in the kitchen to roast your salmon and once it’s in the oven your hands and kitchen is free for other things and enjoying time with your friends. I really like to serve this fish with some spinach, which is also prepared and cooked in no time.
