When we came back into town on Sunday we were famished but didn't want to eat out. We picked up some salmon on our way home and I quickly found this amazing marinade on allrecipes.com. I made some changes based on what we had in the house, and it was great!
This marinade was quick to make, and was perfect with the salmon. I let it marinate for about an hour as we unpacked, and it was ready to go! I love when a slightly spicy flavour is paired with salmon.
I served this with some sauteed asparagus, and made some quick 'garlic bread' with some buns that I buttered, sprinkled with garlic powder, and threw under the broiler during the last few minutes that the salmon cooked. This marinade would easily be enough for 4 generous pieces of salmon.
