For the Marinade:

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh (peeled) ginger root
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and diced
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the Salmon:

  • 2 servings (about 3 ounces each) salmon fillets skin on or off
  • Marinade
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley for garnish


  • Heavy duty foil


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

For the Marinade:

  • In a bowl, combine juice from a grapefruit, soy sauce, water, brown sugar, ginger, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes and pepper.  Whisk together and set aside.

For the Salmon:

  • On a sheet pan or pizza pan, lay a large piece of heavy duty foil.
  • On the foil, place the pieces of salmon (skin side-down if there is skin on the salmon).  
  • Pour the marinade over the salmon making sure that it stays on the foil
  • Pull all of the sides of the foil up together to make a "tent" and roll the top edges tightly together to seal the tent.  
  • Set the foil packet on a small cookie sheet or pizza pan.
  • Bake the salmon in a preheated oven until it reaches the desired doneness (about 10 minutes). 
  • Salt to taste and serve warm over warm rice.  Garnish with fresh parsley.
