Marinated Salmon with Scallions, Lemon and Tamari
From The Oz Family Kitchen by Lisa Oz



Makes 4 servings
2 scallions (white and green parts), finely chopped (1/3 cup)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the pan
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon tamari
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 salmon fillets with skin (each about 6 inches long)
Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper



Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400°F.

Whisk the scallions, oil, lemon juice, honey, tamari, and garlic together in a small bowl. Pour the marinade into a 1-gallon self-sealing plastic bag. Add the salmon and turn to coat with the marinade. Let the salmon stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes.

Remove the salmon from the marinade and arrange them skin side up in an ovenproof pan or baking dish large enough to hold the salmon in a single layer. Using a slotted spoon, scatter the scallions and garlic from the marinade over the salmon. Season the fillets with salt and pepper. Bake just until opaque with a rosy center when flaked in the thickest part with the tip of a knife, about 15 minutes for rare.

Using a thin metal spatula, transfer the fillets to dinner plates and serve.
