Asian baked salmon

Asian baked salmon

Finally bought fresh salmon! I planned for salmon sliders with avocado sauce, but the avocados looked sad and and I forgot to pick up the mini bun things. So I made a simple baked salmon instead, this time with a light Asian marinade. Using fresh salmon made a huge difference...the result was a perfectly cooked, seasoned, lightly saucy salmon which was perfect over rice.

  • 4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 inch ginger, grated
  • 3 large cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 tsp chopped cilantro
  • 1.5 lb fresh salmon
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Butter


Preheat oven to 350F. Combine the soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic, and cilantro in a bowl. Place the salmon in a lined baking dish and season both sides with salt and pepper. Brushthe  sauce on both sides of the salmon and top with 4 small slices of butter. Bake for 25 min (I like when the fish isn't too soft like goo). Serve on top of rice, quinoa, or even tacos.
