3 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce

2 Tbsp garlic paste 

2 Tbsp olive oil 

1 Tbsp onion powder

  2. Add your salmon to the bag and place in the fridge for 4-5 hours. 
  3. After your salmon is well marinated, set your stovetop to medium heat and add cooking oil or spray. Once hot, add marinated salmon fillets skin side up.
