Asian Glazed Salmon

I really dislike all seafood. I remember ordering a chinese dish and getting shrimp instead of chicken. I took one bite and that chewy texture of the shrimp was so gross to me! But when I was trying to eat better after my first son was born, I decided to try salmon. Salmon is a good start if you hate seafood. I loved it! Now I will actually order salmon when I go out to eat because I have grown to love it so much. It is healthy for you and it isn’t too extreme with the fishy taste. My nine year old actually thought that it was chicken!Asian glazed salmon on a white plate with rice and asparagus.

I love salmon because it is so easy and fast to cook. You put it under the broiler for 5 minutes on each side and it is cooked perfectly. I especially loved the asian glaze on this because it gave it such a great flavor. It had all of my favorite things in the glaze and I am a lover of Asian inspired dishes. I knew I would love it and it made such a great meal served with asparagus and brown rice. Even if you aren’t a seafood lover, you need to give this recipe a try! 🙂

  1. This is great. We were looking for a new preparation for salmon…my husband was making fried rice…it all went together really well. Very tasty.

  2. The sauce burnt horribly under the broiler and after the flip, the salmon still wasn’t cooked! What went wrong??

    1. Use a grill sheet on top of a pan and watch closely. I would actually sear it skin side up then flip and glaze. Sugars will burn if not balanced by enough fat when put under a broiler. Otherwise you need to marinade for several hours and not broil.
