This Asian Salmon recipe tops healthy salmon fillets with a boldly flavored Asian glaze of hoisin sauce, garlic, and siracha.

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE SALMON

  • 1 1/2 pounds of salmon fillet(s)
  • 1-2 teaspoons sesame seeds for garnish
  • 3 green onions for garnish, sliced thin

FOR THE ASIAN GLAZE

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons of lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon low sodium soy sauce

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. In a bowl combine the garlic, hoisin sauce, lime juice, sesame oil, honey, sriracha sauce and soy sauce to make the Asian glaze. Mix to combine. Put 1/3 of the glaze into another bowl and set both bowls of glaze aside.
  3. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking oil.  
  4. Slice the salmon into 4 fillets and place skin down on the baking sheet.
  5. Using the bowl with 1/3 of the Asian glaze, brush a light coat of the Asian glaze on the top of each salmon fillet. Since this is raw salmon, make sure to NOT put the brush into the larger bowl with 2/3 of the glaze as you do not want to contaminate it with any bacteria that might be on the salmon. After coating the salmon fillets, discard the rest of the 1/3 bowl of Asian glaze and clean your brush.
  6. Cook the salmon for 4-6 minutes based on every 1/2 inch of thickness to your liking (4 minutes on the more rare side and 6 minutes on the more done side). Test with a fork, you know it is done when it flakes easily with a fork. Ensure the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit so that the salmon is cooked all the way through.
  7. Use a clean brush to top the salmon fillets with the remaining 2/3 of the Asian glaze that was reserved and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
  8. Serve and Enjoy!
