- Orange Ginger
For fans of Asian cuisine, marinating your salmon in an orange ginger mixture can infuse your salmon with strong and delicious flavors. For an orange ginger marinade, mix olive oil with orange juice, ground ginger, minced garlic, orange zest, salt, and pepper. For an added touch of Asian fusion, consider adding a touch of soy sauce to your marinade.

Some of the best salmon marinade mixes pair perfectly with every dish. Combining a fresh herb and lemon marinade is versatile and brings out the natural fresh flavors of salmon. Simply mix lemon juice, oil, fresh dill, salt, and pepper and soak your salmon. You can add more or exchange the dill for other herbs like fennel, parsley, and tarragon. For a quicker mix, you can opt for an herb-based seasoning mix like Old Bay.
