Marinades for salmon

1. Tiger Milk

Also called Leche de Tigre, a specialty of Peruvian cuisine. This marinade is traditionally often served with ceviche because it has a lot of citrus to it. The acid of the citrus ensures that the fish cooks very lightly in the juice. If you’re a raw fish fan, you’ll love salmon in tiger’s milk!

Leche de tigre can be made in many different ways. In any case, what belongs in it are different types of citrus fruits such as orange and lime, chilies, spices and salt or a fish stock. Although we have also tasted it with coconut milk.

Fun fact : in some parts of South America, Leche de Tigre is drunk to get rid of a hangover. Compare it to a bloody mary, which is also not a bad idea for a salmon marinade!

2. Teriyaki

Teriyaki is now almost retro, but that doesn’t affect the taste. This is one of those dishes that you can dream of, it’s simpler than simple. Super handy if you have less time to cook. You can also use the marinade as a sauce. Delicious with rice and some stir-fried bimi, pak choi or other leafy vegetables with a crunch. 

Teriyaki is made by mixing some mirin, soy sauce, lime juice, grated ginger, finely chopped spring onions and sesame seeds. Soak the salmon in the sauce and cook it very slowly in the oven.

3. pesto

If you thought pesto was just for the chicken and pasta,  think twice! Although we would leave out the cheese – actually it is more like a salsa verde or a pistou. The recipe is quite forgiving: you take various herbs you have lying around – dill, parsley, coriander and even mint are all delicious – chop them finely and mix with lots of fragrant olive oil, the juice and zest of a lemon, enough salt and optionally chopped nuts.

For example, it becomes extra luxurious with macadamias or pistachios. Can you picture it already? The contrast between the pink of the salmon and the green pistachio with herbs. Give us such a marinade!

4. Honey Garlic Marinade

Light, fresh with a nice sweetness without dominating the taste of the salmon. On the contrary, this marinade actually strengthens the salmon. The secret is in that extra squeeze of lemon juice that you mix with a little honey, some grated garlic on the microplane (not in the garlic press, Anthony would kill us !) and olive oil.

If you like a kick, a pinch of chili is fine with it! Bonus: you already have most of the ingredients for this marinade at home.

5. Chipotle

Easy does it! Since the chipotle in adobo sauce is available in the Dutch supermarket, we don’t want to be without it anymore. Chipotle salmon on a warm tortilla is ideal for a busy day at work, but throw in some fancy toppings like crunchy coleslaw, perfectly ripe avocado, and lime juice massaged onions and suddenly you have a dish that just screams to be eaten. during dinner with friends.
Here’s how to make it: Mash a stick of chipotle in adobo sauce along with some maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, smoked paprika, cumin seeds, garlic, and a little extra oil. Let it soak for a while and then bake in the pan or cook in the oven, and attack!
