Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dry white wine

Directions

  1. In a large bowl  whisk together the  salt and pepper, crushed red peppers, onion powder, olive oil, dry white wine, chopped cilantro, garlic, vinegar, chopped onions and sugar. Place the salmon stakes on a large pan and pour the marinade over it.
