Drizzle the marinade all over the salmon. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes. Put in the oven and bake for 12 minutes if it’s just small fillets. If it is a big piece like the one shown above, bake for 30-35 minutes, or until you see white forming on the top.

The general rule is for every 2.5 cm of thickness, add 10 minutes to the cooking time.
