1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound trout strips
Mix all ingredients together with the exception of strips. Allow the ingredients at least 15 minutes for flavors to blend. Add strips. Marinate at least one hour. For longer marinating time, place in the refrigerator in a covered container or in an airtight plastic bag. Remove from marinade and place in a drying environment.
As the oil beaded up during the drying process, pat it off. I turned the fish strips over once during the drying process.
