Asian Salmon

Asian Salmon

I wanted to make a healthy seafood dinner so I went online to find some inspiration. I came across an Asian salmon recipe from Ina Garten that looked great. I adapted the recipe a bit by adding sesame oil, a little bit of honey, and some water. The salmon was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. Both of my kids had seconds – gotta love that!  This salmon paired nicely with the Garlic-Ginger Bok Choy Sauté and rice. It was a quick and healthy meal that we all loved.

How to Make Asian Salmon

Whisk together the mustard, soy sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, honey, water, and garlic together in a small bowl.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil (for easier clean-up). Coat the tin foil with cooking spray.

Lay the salmon, skin side down, on the baking sheet. Pour half of the marinade on top of the salmon making sure to spread it evenly. Reserve the remaining marinade. Season the top of the fish with freshly cracked black pepper, to taste. Let the fish sit for 10 minutes while the oven preheats.

Place into the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork. Remove from the oven and serve with reserved marinade. Serve immediately.  Enjoy.

  1. This salmon recipe looks fantastic. So easy and will make it. You can find a lot of salmon´s recipes in my blog, but anyone with asian flavors, so I’ll definitely be trying this. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks for letting me know it was missing. I used 1 teaspoon of honey. The recipe has been corrected.

      Thanks!

  2. I love salmon (and I’m sure a lot of other people do too) so this was something I really stopped to look at. I am always looking for new ways to cook this fish and an Asian style seemed interesting to me. The ingredients seem pretty healthy and they will enhance the flavor of this great fish rather than simply covering it up. Thanks for the new idea.

  3. Really good, Pam. The marinade allows the taste of the salmon to coexist with it, creating a great flavor mix. And the best part is that it’s very easy to prepare. Thank you!
