  • 2 garlic Cloves, chopped fine
  • 1 Tbsp grated Ginger
  • 1/4 cup Eroica Riesling
  • 1/3 cup Soy Sauce

Directions:

In a sauce pan, heat the oils over medium heat. Sauté garlic and ginger until soft. Add the Riesling, soy sauce, orange juice and honey; simmer until reduced by half. When cool, add Alaska Sockeye Salmon pieces to marinade and marinate for 3 to 5 minutes, turning to coat all sides.
