Simple Hoisin Glazed Salmon

This salty sweet glazed salmon is making me look all fancy and it can do the same for you, and then you’re all like I’mmm so fan-saay, and I’m all like you already know.

This Simple Hoisin Glazed Salmon has a 6-ingredient sauce made from scratch that is brushed over the salmon and baked to perfection.

Prep Time

    •    Prep time: 10 minutes
    •    Cook time: 30 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


    •    2 limes
    •    1 lb. salmon
    •    1/2 cup water
    •    2 tbsps honey
    •    2-3 cloves garlic
    •    1 tbsp sesame oil
    •    1/4 cup hoisin sauce
    •    11 inch piece fresh ginger
    •    sesame seeds for topping
    •    1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce


  1. To make the hoisin glaze, puree the soy sauce, water, hoisin, garlic, ginger, honey, and juice of one lime in a blender or food processor. Transfer to a skillet over medium high heat. Simmer until the mixture reduces to a syrupy consistency that will stick to the salmon when brushed on. Remove from heat.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the salmon into four pieces. Pour the sesame oil in a baking dish (I’d recommend nonstick) and arrange the salmon in the pan. Brush the salmon with a thin layer of glaze, reserving the rest of the glaze for later. Bake for 15 minutes; remove from oven, brush with glaze again, and bake for another 15 minutes. When the salmon is done (it will be firm and flake apart easily) remove from oven and brush with the glaze one more time before serving. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if you want to be fan-say.
