  • 3 tbsp soy sauce (45 g)
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar (15 g)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil (5 g)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (or frozen cubes)
  • 3 tsp ginger, minced (or frozen cubes)
  • 1 tsp honey (5 g)
  • 1 tsp chili garlic sauce (5 g)
  • ½ lime, juiced (8 g)
  • handful of cilantro, chopped (6 g)
  • 1 ½ lb sockeye salmon (672 g)
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste


  • Combine everything but the salmon and salt and pepper to make marinade.
  • Pour marinade over the salmon in a shallow dish or ziplock and let marinate for at least 30 minutes but as long as 8 hours or so.
  • Place marinated salmon fillets on a parchment lined baking sheet, skin side down. Sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt and a few cracks of pepper and place on the second highest rack in a preheated broiler.
  • Broil on low (if it’s an option) for 3-5 minutes depending on the thickness and preferred doneness.  Broil on high for 1-2 more minutes if needed, or to get more color on top.
  • Enjoy with rice, noodles, alongside steamed or sautéed veggies or on top of the Asian Slaw, recipe below.

Farm-raised salmon is much higher in fat, which makes it delicious and easy to keep nice and moist. If you’re using a leaner salmon like Wild-Caught Alaskan Sockeye, make sure to keep an eye on it so you don’t overcook or it will dry out. Sometimes the fillets are very thin and will just need a few minutes in the oven.
