Salmon Marinated in Whiskey

21 May

Chefs use whisky in cooking to enhance salty, smoky or sweet flavors. I am always interested in new ideas and this one caught my attention. I have posted a recipe for bourbon salmon before, which is quite similar to this. This one has little more  kick from the sriracha.

  • 2 1/2 tbs olive oil
  • 3 tbs low sodium gluten free soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup whiskey
  • 3 tbs brown sugar
  • 2 gloves of garlic, pressed
  • 2 tsp sriracha or other hot sauce
  • salmon fillet

Mix all of the marinade ingredients together and pour in a ziplock bag. Add the salmon and place in the fridge to marinate at least an hour, turning the bag few times. Bake in 400 degree oven or grill on a cedar plank for 15-20 minutes or until desired doneness.
