Baked Asian Salmon
Baked Asian Salmon – A light and flavorful 30-minute Asian meal! Fresh salmon topped with a delicious Asian sauce that’s great served over brown rice or quinoa!
Having a healthy heart is vital to your overall health. Something I try to focus on making a heart healthy meal that I can feel good about putting into my body. This week, I decided to make a baked Asian salmon recipe. This was going to be a light and flavorful meal that would be jam-packed with good ingredients!
In addition to eating heart healthy foods, I use Nature Made® Omega-3 and Cholestoff to help support my heart health efforts. Walmart now has a selection of Nature Made® Omega-3 supplements that let you know right on the front of the label the amount of EPA & DHA Omega-3s. EPA + DHA Omega-3s are the active ingredients in fish oil that help provide all of those heart healthy benefits that we know and love.† Once you pick out the right Nature Made® Omega-3 supplement(s) from Walmart, you are ready to take your heart healthy efforts to a whole new level! Did you know that studies have shown that having type 2 diabetes, cholesterol or high blood pressure can greatly increase your risk of heart disease? In order to live a healthy lifestyle, try to make sure that you eat healthy foods, exercise on a regular basis, and maintain a healthy weight. In addition, try including Nature Made® Omega-3s and Nature Made® CholestOff® Plus supplements into your daily regimen to help support your heart health.† You can even save money by purchasing these Nature Made® items at Walmart!

How to make this Baked Asian Salmon recipe
Step 1 – Marinade salmon
Pat salmon dry and place it in a bowl with soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Refrigerate and let marinate for at least 15 minutes.
Step 2 – Bake salmon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place salmon on a lined sheet pan and bake for at least 15 minutes or until the salmon starts to flake off with a fork.
Step 3 – Make sauce (optional)
While the salmon is cooking, mix together ingredients (hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sriracha, and sesame seeds) for the sauce in a small mixing bowl. This step is optional, because it does add more sodium to the recipe, but you don’t really put very much on the salmon so it is up to you. Alternatively, if you skip making this sauce, I suggest making sure the salmon marinates for at least 2 hours to make sure that the flavors from that soak in as much as possible, so that you have a very flavorful fish even without the sauce.
Step 4 – Assembly
Serve salmon over rice and drizzle it with a little sauce. Serve immediately.
That’s it! Not only is this meal heart healthy and delicious, but it is also super easy to make! It’s great for busy weeknights as an alternative to more unhealthy options such as ordering a pizza or making ramen.
