  • Pour into a 1 gallon baggie or a marinade container
  • Place salmon into the marinade and seal baggie or container
  • Place in refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours, turning 1 to 2 times to coat salmon completely
  • Just before cooking, whisk together in a shallow dish the flour, black pepper, and 1/4 tsp salt
  • Heat the 2 TBS olive oil in a medium sized pan over low to medium heat
  • Pour 1 to 2 TBS of the marinade into the pan with the olive oil
  • Dredge the salmon fillets through the flour mixture, coating on both sizes
