Asian Glazed Salmon in Foil

1-2 pound salmon fillet (no skin)

1 teaspoon fresh ginger (minced)

3 cloves garlic (minced)

2 green onions (chopped)

1/4 cup soy sauce (low sodium)

2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce

3 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

2 tablespoons lime juice (freshly squeezed)

1/8 teaspoon salt (or to taste)

1/8 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)


Prepare the oven: Preheat your oven to 375 F degrees. Place 2 foil sheets on a baking sheet. I used 2 foil sheets because I want to make sure there’s enough foil to wrap around the salmon.

Combine the marinade: In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, maple syrup, sweet chili sauce, lime juice, fresh ginger, garlic, salt and pepper. The salt can probably be omitted since the soy sauce should have plenty of sodium.

Prepare the salmon: Place the salmon fillet over the foil then pour about half the marinade over and brush if necessary to cover the entire surface of the fish. Turn the fish over and pour the rest of the marinade. Also brush the marinade making sure that the entire fish is brushed with marinade.

Cook the salmon: Fold the edges of the aluminum foil over the salmon so that it is fully wrapped. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, depending on the size of your salmon, my salmon was quite a big piece, so I baked it for 25 minutes. You may also turn the broiler on and broil for about 2 to 3 minutes at the end if preferred.

Finish the dish: Open the foil and garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
