How’s everyone Christmas? I think many of us have slaved over the stove over the past week and would probably be afraid of getting near the stove (well, that’s me), so this oven recipe is a great way to stay away from the kitchen – just make the marinade, pour over the salmons, and once again, the oven does all the work – and you can have another meal just under 30 minutes!
Quick and easy recipe doesn’t always necessary means flavour and taste are sacrificed. I love how the sauce tasted sweet (brown sugar), salty (soy sauce) and sour (lemon juice) all at the same time. It makes a very light and tasty sauce which complemented the fish very well.
An additional bonus is that clean-up is also a breeze as the aluminum foil prevents any stains or sorts on your baking sheet. If you make individual foil containers for each piece of salmon, you won’t even need to wash any serving plates.
Let’s not wait anymore and make this delicious dish!
Combine brown sugar, lemon juice, soy sauce, oil and water in a shallow bowl.
Dip the salmon fillets into the sauce, turning them to coat in the marinade.
Bake them skin-side up.
And there you have it, a simple but tasty meal in less than 30 minutes!

- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- ½ tablespoon lemon juice
- ½ tablespoon water
- 2 salmon fillets
- 4 lemon slices (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Use a large piece of aluminium foil and make a foil container large enough to place the salmon fillets close to each other and to hold the marinating juices. Place the foil container on a baking sheet and set aside.
- Combine the light brown sugar, olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice and water in a shallow bowl. Coat the salmon fillets both side with the sauce and place it in the foil container, skin-side up. Pour in the sauce and place the lemon slices on top of the salmon fillets if using.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the middle rack until the salmon is cooked through. Transfer the salmon onto a serving plate and drizzle the sauce all over. Serve with baked fries.
