The Best Baked Salmon
This baked salmon recipe comes from 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.
Imagine baking the salmon with some ginger, garlic, honey, soy sauce, and oyster sauce.
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.
The end result is SO good. The salmon is extremely flavorful and delightful.

If the ginger and garlic are burned on the surface of the salmon, scrape them off before serving.
