Sweet and Tangy Asian BBQ Salmon dripping with flavor from the most INCREDIBLE glaze but one of the easiest meals to throw together!
It was a cold, rainy El Nino day as dark as dusk when I made and photographed this salmon. But just like its ease and flavor come through for me every time, so did its caramelized beauty through the cloudy diffused light. Seriously, this salmon never lets me down – its a wonder in every way, every time.
Every time I make this Asian BBQ Salmon, I feel giddy that I get to savor a restaurant quality dish in my own home that takes just minutes to whip up. So let’s get giddy…
First, you whip up your marinade that doubles as your delectable glaze in mere minutes by whisking together the dynamic rainbow of flavors of Asian chili sauce, hoisin (like Asian BBQ sauce), ketchup, cider vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger and garlic. That is all the prep for this dish. When it comes time to actually “make” dinner, all you do is sizzle away!
Simply cook your salmon on one side until golden, then flip and pour half of your luscious glaze over the salmon to caramelize while the salmon finishes cooking.
That’s it! Now, just when you didn’t think the tender, flavor effusive salmon could get any better, drizzle with your leftover sweet and tangy Asian BBQ glaze.
