I love salmon, but let's face it, it pretty much tastes like whatever ingredients you use to prepare it. This marinade recipe came from Wes's mom and it's delicious. It can also be used on chicken...
cracked pepper, to taste
1/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 T rum (or a little more if you really like rum's flavor)
3 T lemon juice (freshly-squeezed or bottled)
5 whole cloves, smashed
In a 9x13-inch baking dish, mix the above ingredients. Place meat in marinade and refrigerate for a few hours. Flip meat over and continue marinating for a few more hours. Grill, bake, or fry meat in your desired fashion. So good!
