Asian Sesame Salmon is a healthy and easy salmon recipe. Marinated with soy sauce, ginger, and sesame oil, this fish pairs well with rice and veggies.
This slightly sweet Asian Sesame Salmon will surely be your new favorite way to prepare the fish. The entire dish can be prepared in advance and baked before serving.
A great recipe to have on hand and makes for amazing leftovers. Serve warm with rice and veggies, or flake for a delicious omelette addition or top a salad with it.
The marinade for this recipe is what makes the dish. The sweetness of the brown sugar mixed with the salty soy sauce, really adds a hit of umami! Moreover, for the ginger, I like to use ginger paste which comes in a tube and you can find in the produce aisle of most supermarkets.
I also use this salmon for my Meal Prep Salmon & Broccoli recipe post and talk about how you can meal plan your week around this dish. A great use for a sheet pan for sure!

When ready to bake, preheat the oven and line a large pan with foil. Add the salmon and pour any remaining marinade over the fish.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
