If you don’t like salmon because it’s fishy or dry, you will change your mind after you try this Asian salmon recipe! The salmon here is very moist, flaky, juicy, and flavorful. The Asian sauce is smooth and silky, with just the right amount of garlic. The whole dish is very easy to make – I make this for dinner right after a long day at work!
The key to the moist and juicy salmon is to bake it at 350 degrees for only 15 minutes, and then broil it for 5 minutes (or longer if you like it more charred). This way you get the very best out of salmon: it will be moist and juicy (not dry), and it will also have a nice charred look, which is much more appetizing and pretty than if you just baked it.
I like to serve this salmon over a small bed of very thin rice noodles, which will absorb some of the sauce from the fish, and also the sauce that you will pour on top of salmon after condensing it a bit. You can serve any type of your favorite greens: cooked spinach, green beans, or Asian greens (baby bok choy, Chinese spinach, etc.). I only had asparagus, so that’s what I served it with. Enjoy!
