Ginger Garlic Baked Salmon
Ginger Garlic Baked Salmon – the best and easiest salmon recipe ever! Moist, flavorful, juicy, and takes only 10 mins to prep. So good you’ll want seconds!!
Ginger and garlic are two of my favorite ingredients. I never run out of them in my kitchen. In Asian cooking, they are two of the most important ingredients that impart amazing aromas and flavors to all kinds of food, especially when they are used to marinate protein such as chicken, meat, or seafood such as salmon.
This salmon recipe is inspired by my very popular ginger garlic baked chicken. I have been making the chicken for years but never thought of using the same marinade for salmon. Over the past weekend, we went to Costco and I loaded up some very fresh salmon and immediately thought about baking the salmon with some ginger, garlic, honey, soy sauce, and oyster sauce. The end result was SO good. The salmon was extremely flavorful and delightful. I finished the whole salmon and the rice in minutes, after I finished shooting the photos. What a yummy and satisfying meal, ones that I will make again and again for sure!
The recipe is super easy, no-fuss, and takes less than 30 minutes from prep to dinner table. 10 minutes of prep and active time, and 15 minutes in the oven. To serve, just top steamed rice with the salmon. Drizzle the extra juice that seeps out from the baking process onto the fish and rice, dig in and enjoy!
