This Asian Honey Sriracha Salmon recipe is bursting with sweet and spicy flavor. A simple and healthy dinner recipe that is quick enough for weekdays, but elegant enough for entertaining!
Salmon is a dinnertime superstar that is hearty, flavorful and nutritious. It is a great source of protein, vitamin A, and omega fatty acids, which are essential to the proper functioning of the heart and brain.
In this recipe, salmon fillets are marinated in a sweet and spicy Asian-style marinade and then baked to flaky perfection. It makes a fantastic main dish because it is fast enough for weekdays, but fancy enough for entertaining.
For a simple, satisfying meal, serve the salmon with steamed rice or vegetables. Other sides that pair fabulously with this recipe are my Sesame Noodles and Chinese Fried Rice. For a protein-packed lunch or dinner, have it with my Quinoa Fried “Rice”.
My only preparation tip for this recipe is don’t overcook the salmon! When the fish looks opaque and the flesh starts to flake easily with a fork, it is done.
