I came up with this oven-baked recipe to get my kids to enjoy salmon. My kids are not exactly salmon lovers but this worked.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Heat 1/2 of the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir 1/2 of the garlic and ginger until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes.

  • Grease a baking pan with the remaining oil. Season salmon with salt and pepper and place in the baking pan. Rub cooled garlic and ginger over the salmon.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes.

  • While the salmon is baking, prepare the hoisin-plum sauce. Melt butter in the skillet; cook and stir remaining garlic and ginger until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add rice vinegar and let it cook off. Add oyster sauce and chile paste; bring to a simmer. Stir in hoisin and plum sauces and bring back to a simmer. Pour in chicken broth to loosen up sauce to a lighter consistency. Add soy sauce.

  • Cover salmon with the sauce and continue baking until flesh flakes easily with a fork, 5 to 6 minutes more. Garnish with scallions before serving.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute honey for plum sauce if desired.

Substitute any white vinegar for the rice wine vinegar if desired.

I served this with a sesame noodle salad, which is generally served cold, pan-seared pork dumplings, and my version of Chinese sausage and peppers.
