Poached/Grilled/Broiled Salmon

Adapted from allrecipes


1/2 pound salmon fillets
lemon pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
salt to taste
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1.  Season salmon fillets with lemon pepper, garlic powder, and salt.
2.  In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and vegetable oil until sugar is dissolved. Place fish in a large resealable plastic bag with the soy sauce mixture, seal, and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

3.  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Make a little foil packet for each fillet and close it up, leaving a little room for air to circulate inside. Bake the foil packets on a cookie sheet for about 15 minutes.
*This salmon was delectable.  Very good with lemon and a little sprinkling of dill weed.  I actually cooked it for about 25 minutes, but I tried the frozen salmon fillets and the salmon may have not been completely defrosted.  An inexpensive way to eat salmon.  Serve with lemon wedges.

*I have made this salmon marinade two more times.  Once, I used my parent's grill (as suggested in the original allrecipe); they turned out a little dry, like blackened salmon, but still good.  The third time, I used a grill pan and this was my favorite.  Preheat the grill pan over high heat for about 10 minutes (put no oil on the pan while preheating).  Reduce the heat to medium.  Cook on each side (skin side up first) for 3 minutes.  Check to see whether the fish is opaque all along the cut edges.  If not, cook for a few seconds longer.
