How to Prepare Baked Asian Salmon

Gather your ingredients and preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. 

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.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking oil.  

Slice the salmon into 4 fillets and place skin down on the baking sheet.

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.

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.

  1. Hi Linda,
    You are one of my favorite food bloggers. Everything I made so far has made it into my “”favorites” recipe box. This one looks delicious as well. I have a request: I usually eat vegetarian with some fish every now and then. I would love it if you offered more vegetarian recipes. I know they will be good.
