A seafood marinade with soy sauce and worchestershire sauce as the main ingredients. Yes, the sodium content is off the charts so use low sodium soy and Worchestershire sauce.
3 tablespoons of Soy Sauce
4 tablespoons of Worchestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon of dried basil (you can a bit of fresh basil for color)
2 to 3 cloves of crushed garlic
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
3 tablspoons of olive oil
3 or 4 slices of thick bacon, diced
Marinate the shrimp, swordfish or salmon at least for 30 minutes.
Trim the fat off of the slices of thick bacon and dice.
Pan fry on low heat without any oil or butter
When golden but not crisp, add the seafood.
Reserve any leftover marinade
Cook the seafood to your personal preference (salmon is best slightly undercooked in the center)
Turn off the heat and pour the leftover marinade over the seafood.
Serve over Basmati rice with a green salad.
A friend shared this marinade recipe ions ago. I added the bacon, lemon juice and olive oil.

How I Tweaked The Easy Marinated Shrimp Recipe
In an oblong baking dish, whisk the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and the olive oil.
Add the fresh herbs and the garlic.
Place the salmon fillets first skin side down in the marinade, then flip them over and make sure all sides are completely coated with the marinade.
Bake the salmon in a different pan than the one in which it marinates. The fillets are thick enough that the marinade would burn and ruin your dinner in the time it takes the fish to cook through completely.
Thirty minutes was perfect for these thick fillets but you have to adjust the cooking time for thinner and smaller pieces of salmon.
I double checked “how to bake salmon” instructions on a home magazine website . I did not measure mine but I know it was close to 2 inches thick. Nor did I follow their cooking directions.
Easy Seafood Marinade For Salmon Portions
Those cooking directions would be perfect for the small 4 to 6 oz. portions!
Marinate these large salmon portions for at least 1 hour.
Reserve any marinade to use as a basting sauce once during the cooking period.
