This Soy Sauce and Brown Sugar Salmon Marinade is not only an easy weeknight meal, but elegant enough to impress guests. Carmelized, healthy, and delicious!
Growing up I did not like any seafood of any kind. After living in Maryland for a year and a half, I learned to love crab. But I still don’t like shrimp. And I know some of you are going to give it to me good over this, but I don’t like lobster.
However, I branched out to other types of fish and recently fell in love with Salmon. Deeply in love with salmon. Head over heels in love with salmon.
