This recipe comes from the “Cooking Alaska” cookbook that was given to us by our group of Sitka Salmon Shares member trip winners during the 2019 trip. It is full of recipes by Alaskans for Alaskans, and features traditional and simply prepared recipes that Alaskans love.
- 1 pound fillet coho or king salmon (at least 1 in thick)
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ½ clove garlic, crushed
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- ¼ teaspoon dry mustard
- Lemon slices
- 1 slice of thin cut bacon
- Dill, for garnish (optional)
Mix soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar, and mustard, and pour over salmon in a large plastic bag with a tight seal or in a baking dish.
Marinate salmon, turning frequently for 30-60 minutes in the refrigerator.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Pour off and reserve marinade to use as a baste during cooking. Place the salmon on a baking sheet and lay lemon slices and bacon across the fish (if desired).
Bake 15-30 minutes until salmon is cooked through, basting 2-3 times during cooking.
Garnish with extra lemon and dill.
