Hoisin Glazed Salmon

I often blog about my love for salmon. It is my go to meal when I am on the brink of starving and need something fast before I turn to handfuls of cereal! Salmon is such a versatile fish. It's own mild flavors tend to blend really well with sweet flavors. I had two jars of hoisin and was looking to use some, so I searched for a recipe that would add that asian flavor that I was craving.
This hoisin glazed salmon was very, very good. The preparation was simple. The meal was done in about 15 minutes. What more can you ask of a quick weeknight meal? I really enjoyed the flavors from this glaze, but I did decide that I needed something else. So, I cut some orange segments to pair with and added some sesame seeds. What a very healthy and quick dish! Serve the salmon with a hearty grain and some fresh vegetables for a complete and nutritious meal.
Hoisin Glazed Salmon
from the Meal Planner
Yield: 4 servings
  • 1 Tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 4 salmon steaks (about 8-10 ounces and one inch thick) or 4 salmon fillets (totaling 1 lb)
  • coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Heat the broiler.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, hoisin sauce and honey to make the glaze.
  3. Season both sides of the salmon with salt and pepper. Place the salmon on a rimmed baking sheet and brush both sides generously with the glaze.
  4. Broil the salmon about 4 inches from the heat source. If cooking salmon steaks, baste once and cook until opaque in the center, 10-13 minutes. If using salmon fillets, cook only about 6-7 minutes until opaque in the center.
