  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons brown mustard I use spicy brown mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey or use brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice or juice from ½ lemon
  • 1 serrano pepper diced (or use even hotter peppers to really spice things up - optional, for extra spicy)
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Red pepper flakes to taste use ¼ to 1 teaspoon, or to taste
  • 2 6- ounce salmon fillets


  • Whisk together the soy sauce, olive oil, honey or brown sugar, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt and red pepper flakes in a mixing bowl until well combined.
  • Place the salmon in a large zip-lock bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag and refrigerate at least 15 to 20 minutes, or for 1 hour before cooking.


You can also set the salmon into a wide pan or bowl and cover them with the marinade, then top with plastic wrap.
Works great with any salmon recipe.
