This salmon recipe is definitely a go-too for me when I’m feeling like having Asian for dinner. It is really simple to make and can be used with so many other foods like my gingery broccolini, rice, over noodles, etc. I use my favorite, Trader Joes Soyaki sauce, which has a mixture of mostly soy sauce, garlic, ginger, white vinegar, and sesame oil, but you can easily use your favorite teriyaki sauce or make your own! This recipe can also easily be doubled if your making it for 2 or a family.
1 salmon fillet, about 8 oz.
1 Tb miso
1/2 lime, juiced
1/4 cup Soyaki sauce from Trader Joes (can use your favorite teriyaki/marinade sauce)
1 small knob of ginger, grated
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 bunch of broccolini, stems trimmed
Salt and Pepper
Place salmon in a dish. In a bowl, whisk together the soyaki sauce, miso, and lime juice. Pour over salmon and allow to marinate for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place salmon on a rimmed baking sheet, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and bake for about 5-6 minutes or until salmon is just cooked through.
To prepare the broccolini, heat olive oil in a large pan. Add ginger and red pepper flakes and cook for one minute on med-high heat. Add broccolini, salt and pepper, and sautee for another minute. Add 1/2 cup of water, put the lid on, and allow to steam for 5 minutes or until just tender.
