Of all my easy recipes my salmon greek salad is a family favorite. Healthy recipes that can be made in 30 minutes are a must in every kitchen.
Melita’s Easy Salmon Marinade
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 fresh cloves of garlic minced
- 1/4 cup of orange juice
- 1 tsp of Spike or Italian herbs
- 2 tbsp olive oil
Marinate the salmon in the fridge for minimum 15 minutes and cook another 15 minutes to make it a nice 30 minute meal. If possible the longer the better.
Grill in a grill pan if you don’t have a grill. Cook on medium heat about 6-8 minutes on each side. I like to get my pan hot on medium high then turn it down to medium after I’ve thrown the salmon on the pan. Use the extra marinade to drizzle on the salmon once you’ve flipped the first side. See the picture below for how medium well my salmon looks in the middle.
