Tasty oven-baked salmon with Asian marinade that takes care of itself in the oven A excellent dinner to cook when time is short.
I made this recipe several times and I always enjoy it. And I’m just telling you now: you’re going to love this salmon. Juicy, super tasty and easy-to-cook salmon that you just have to put in the oven. I really like one-pot-dishes. The salmon is brushed with a good spicy marinade with Asian flavors of garlic, ginger. lime, coriander and a hint of sweetness from sweet chili.
Easy to make
Sometimes one key parameter is: easy to make. If you can manage to whisk a few ingredients together and pour it over the fish, then you can manage to make this simple recipe.
How to Serve Baked Salmon with Asian marinade
I would serve this over some pasta, my own preference is tagliatelle, but alternative are plain steamed rice, or with a side of steamed vegetables like cauliflower. However, ordinary salad suits just fine as well.

If you’re making this recipe for the first time (as I did last weekend), be careful about some of the posted modifications. I used two that turned out to be mistakes. #1 – don’t add melted butter to your marinade! Once it’s back in the fridge chilling, it’s not a marinade anymore, it’s a blob of thick goo. #2 – if you’re using salmon fillets, watch the size – thicker is definitely better.
Nice to hear you tried this recipe, however do not understand the #1 “butter modification”, since I do not have butter in the marinade.
#2 Totally agree. Thicker is better and also easier to measure with a thermometer.
