For those of you looking for healthy and flavorful recipes, I've got a holiday present for you. Here's my take on cooking the easiest salmon- honey, mustard, and soy glazed in foil filled with so much flavor in every bite. And it get's even better..... guaranteed from the fish market to your table in less than 30 minutes. Happy holidays!
1/2 pound Atlantic Salmon
For the marinade:
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons red chilli oil (can substitute with olive oil and red pepper flakes)
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ginger, minced
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
salt and crushed black pepper to taste
I bought 1 pound of cleaned Atlantic salmon, with skin on. For this dish, I cut the filet in two, saving the rest for another meal.
Preheat the oven to 375F. Lightly clean the salmon with water, patting it dry.
In a small bowl, whisk the honey, soy sauce, chilli oil, mustard, ginger, garlic, vinegar, salt, and black pepper.
Line a baking sheet with foil and place the clean salmon, folding up the 4 sides of the foil to avoid spillage. Pour the marinade over the salmon. Fold the sides of the foil over the salmon, sealing the top and sides, completely covering the fish. Make sure that the salmon filet is flat and that the fish is immersed in the mustard and soy mixture.
Bake in the oven at 375F for 20 minutes. After, open the foil, exposing the filet top. Broil for 3-5 minutes until caramelized and sauce has browned.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
Note: Serve with a side of sautéed spring beans in olive oil, soy sauce, and chopped garlic.
