I’ve tried countless salmon recipes and this one is my favorite, without a doubt. You may have seen my sneak-peak post on Instagram last week, and I am excited to share this easy, healthy Asian-Glazed Salmon recipe with you today!
I always have the ingredients for this recipe in my fridge, which is another reason why I love this dish so much. From start to finish, this Asian-Glazed Salmon takes no more than 30 minutes – a weeknight win in my book!
Pair this this salmon with a side of broccoli, green beans, or sautéed spinach. You can also create your own grain bowl and serve it on top of brown rice.
This Asian-Glazed Salmon is packed with flavor in every bite. A short marinade infuses the salmon fillets and a quick broil creates an incredible crust.
- 1/8 cup +2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 1/8 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
- 1 Tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 1 Tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
- 1 small clove garlic, minced
- 1/8 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
- 1/2 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 2 6-ounce salmon fillets
- Sesame seeds (optional)
Place the soy sauce/coconut aminos, sugar, hoisin sauce, ginger, red pepper flakes, and garlic in a medium small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the sauce forms a glaze. Stir the mixture regularly to ensure that it doesn't burn. Remove from heat and stir in the lime juice. Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Place in the oven to bake for 6-8 minutes. Then, turn the oven to the BROIL setting and broil the salmon on the top rack until cooked through, about 2 minutes. Remove from oven and brush with more glaze (if desired). Allow to cool for 2 minutes and serve.
