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!

Rinse the salmon and pat dry with paper towels. Add the ginger and garlic to the salmon and gently rub them on the salmon. Add the rest of the ingredients to the salmon, stir to mix well so the salmon are nicely coated with all the ingredients.
Set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes or best for 2 hours in the fridge.
Pre-heat the oven to 375 F. Line the salmon on a cookie sheet line with greased aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes in the middle of the oven, or until the surface turn brown or slightly charred. Serve warm with rice.
If the ginger and garlic are burned on the surface of the salmon, scrape them off before serving.
