  • Add soy sauce, rice wine, rice vinegar, ginger, and wasabi paste to the garlic-sesame oil mixture; whisk to combine. Add salmon fillets and turn to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Remove fillets from the marinade, shake off excess, and place on the prepared baking sheet. Discard the remaining marinade.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, 10 to 15 minutes.

This is THE best new salmon recipe we've tried in years! I've made it about 3 times in the last three weeks. Here are the only "tweeks" I've done: Upped the garlic by 2 cloves, and then used fresh, grated ginger (about 2 tablespoons) rather than the powdered ginger. (We're ginger lovers!) Read More

I didn't have any rice wine so used Cabernet sauvignon instead - Used a little less of each liquid and was still more than enough. Didnt have sesame oil so substituted olive oil into which i put 3 teaspoons of flax seed and heated up the oil for about 10 minutes. Had a thick piece of salmon so cooked it at 375 for 25 minutes and it came out perfect. When i make it again, will marinade the salmon overnight for a more intense flavor Read More
