 The perfect Salmon Recipe

This glaze salmon is made by pan searing the fish until beautifully golden, then serving by drizzling the homemade Garlic Ginger Sauce on top. The flavors of the garlic and the ginger permeate the fish and make it delicious and juicy.

Ways to cook Salmon

You could bake the salmon by drizzling the sauce over it before sending it in the oven, or you can cook it in the skillet and pour the thickened glaze on top as you serve it. Either way, this salmon glaze gives the salmon a very lovely Asian flare, with just a hint of ginger and garlic in it, we loved it!

With what can I serve this garlic ginger salmon?

Serve this fish with a side of rice, rice noodles, or mashed potatoes. We also enjoy it over Cobb salad (in place of chicken) or a simple Cucumber Salad.

For ginger, you can use either fresh and grated ginger or dry ginger, both work the just as good.

Nothing beats fish that’s as fresh as the one you catch yourself. What are your favorite salmon recipes?

    I’d like to know if this can be baked as a previous person asked, but no answer has come forth as yet and Nadia asked 3 years ago. So, could you please notify if this can be baked as it sounds quite delicious.

    • Yes, you can definitely bake the salmon. Just bake for 11-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon at @450F.

    my husband is indifferent about fish (but I love it, especially salmon), so he wasn’t too excited when he saw I had salmon out to make for dinner… preparing it this way, I got praise that “this salmon is delicious!” needless to say, I was shocked and pleased. So easy and tasty, this is definitely a keeper!

    Made this for dinner this evening. This recipe is simple, tasty and healthy. The fish really only needs a little drizzle of glaze so there’s ample amount leftover. I’m using the remaining glaze for my baked tofu tomorrow!

    Marina, this looks fancy and delicious :). Our neighbor gave us some salmon fillet from his recent fishing trip, so I would give this a try.

    I am trying this tonight. I have everything but rice vinegar. Could I use regular vinegar?

    • To be honest I am not sure, but I think any not too strongly flavored acid should work.

    What? I thought salmon season passed. Anyhow, I will be trying this when I crave for salmon. We stocked up in September with fresh caught wild king salmon from Astoria and froze it for the fall and winter.

    • Well now it probably has now, but a week before I posted the recipe my husband was still catching fish 🙂 But hey, stores have salmon year round 😀 Although it sounds like you’ll be good for a while with your fresh-caught-frozen salmon 😀

    this looks SOOOOOO delicious!!! I am going to try this salmon recipe. That rice looks really tasty too!

    • Thanks Luba! I used bullion cubes instead of cubes to salt the water for cooking rice so it had a nice meaty flavor. If you have chicken broth you can use that instead 🙂
