Here’s my delicious baked salmon recipe that’s easy and fun. Since fresh salmon fillets are so large, one fillet works great for family gatherings.
3 pound fresh Alaskan Salmon fillet
4 tablespoons peanut oil
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 onion finely chopped
1 tablespoon onion powder
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 and ½ teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together except, only use one tablespoon of brown sugar. Save two tablespoons for the top—later. Put the topping in the fridge for later.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray the baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. For heart healthy cooking, I use extra-virgin olive oil non-stick.
Remove salmon from the deli wrapping and scrap off all scales. Rinse thoroughly with cold tap water. Cut into desired fillets and place onto prepared baking sheet—skin side down.
Remove the topping from fridge and spoon on top of fillets; coat evenly. Next use the 2 tablespoons of brown sugar that are remaining to sprinkle over the topping. This is the glaze.
Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and carefully pour off the juice. Be careful—the salmon will easily slide off the baking sheet.
If you like your fish a little more crispy like we do, put back in the oven and bake for 5 minutes at 400 degrees. If not, keep the temp at 350 degrees for 5 more minutes of baking. Your choice.
Total baking time is 15 minutes.
This Salmon has a sweet and sour zip that adds to the flavor of the fish. If you like new fish recipes this is a great one to try. It’s delicious, fun, and very heart healthy.
