Liquid Aminos Baked Salmon

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Ok!  I know I am always mentioning that I use this particular ingredient for all of my stir-fry however, I have not shared my favorite thing to do with it!

Liquid Aminos is a healthier, low sodium alternative to soy sauce.  I love the BRAGG's one! It contains 16 essentials and non essentials amino acids.  Liquid Aminos is a protein concentrate derived from NON- GMO soy beans.
 If you are hesitant about giving up that high sodium soy sauce... Please take my word for it, I have been a fan of liquid aminos for years now and can honestly tell you: it taste just like soy sauce!

MARINADE!  When I started on this healthy journey I have to admit that all of my foods started out being a bit plain and boring.  I learned that the way to my taste buds is marinading!  I love it, I think using fresh herbs and natural good tasting fresh ingredients is key to making flavorful meals.

Cook what you love! In my household my son and I are fish lovers we love our seafood.
My son's favorite is my Liquid Aminos Baked Salmon.
You are going to need:
4 4oz salmon fillets (I used wild caught)
a baking dish

For marinade:
1/4 cup of liquid aminos
1/4 t. of black pepper
1/2 t. of grated fresh ginger
1 tbsp. of minced garlic
1/4 t. of dried minced onions
1 tbsp. of maple syrup
1/2 tsp. of Siracha (optional)

Directions:
 Combine all of your marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl, whisk well and set aside.  Place your salmon fillets in a baking dish.  Pour in your marinade mixture onto your salmon, making sure that all sides of your fillets are coated with the marinade.  Cover your baking dish and place in the fridge for 6-8 hours or overnight.

 Baking:
Preheat your oven at 375 degrees.  Remove your salmon from fridge, stir mixture around a bit so that the marinade is well distributed.  Place your salmon in the preheated oven covered with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes.  After 15 minutes, remove the aluminum foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

Remove from over and let your salmon cool for about 5 minutes covered with aluminum foil.
I love pairing my salmon with a side of plain quinoa and steamed broccoli. 

I hope you give this one a try!
What's your favorite way to cook salmon?
