Marinated Grilled Salmon Recipe

This is my best salmon marinade for grilled salmon, but I also love it for baked or seared salmon. It’s slightly sweet, slightly savory, majorly flavorful, and super easy. Once you try it, I bet it will be your go-to healthy and easy salmon marinade recipe, too.

Oh, and this marinade isn’t just for salmon; you can use it for almost any flaky fish, including baked pork chops, in place of the marinade I usually use for pork chops.
