Asian Style Salmon

In just a few minutes you can pull this together, serve it with a salad and it is a simple easy dinner that you will want on repeat!

Asian Salmon 2

This is the most delicious dish – and the simplest!  A few minutes to prepare, a few more to cook and you are done!  The flavour is just exquisite!  I used parchment instead of foil tonight – either works well.

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha, optional
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 pounds salmon
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
Asian Salmon 1

Whisk these few ingredients together and everything is ready in minutes.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together garlic, honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, Sriracha and pepper, to taste.
  3. Place salmon onto the prepared baking sheet and fold up all 4 sides of the foil. Spoon the honey mixture over the salmon. Fold the sides of the foil over the salmon, covering completely and sealing the packet closed.
  4. Place into oven and bake until cooked through, about 15-20 minutes.* Open the packet and broil for 2-3 minutes, or until caramelized and slightly charred.
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with green onions and sesame seeds, if desired.

This recipe came from “damndelicious” and it certainly is!

It doesn’t happen often, but every so often Grant isn’t home for dinner …. and he doesn’t like salmon, so that is the first thing I think of making.  Loved this spicy, tasty salmon with a bit of sauce to drizzle over rice or vegetables.
