3 Tablespoons gochujang (Korean chili paste)

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce

1 Tablespoon honey or maple syrup

1 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar

1 Tablespoon sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 pound salmon fillets (4 ounces each)

1/4 cup scallions, thinly sliced (garnish)

2 Tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (optional garnish)


  1. Preheat broiler and place the oven rack 6-8 inches away from broiler.

  2. Pat salmon dry using a paper towel. Line a baking sheet with foil and transfer salmon (skin side down) to prepared baking sheet.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the gochujang paste, fresh ginger, garlic powder, soy sauce, honey, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, salt, and pepper.

  4. Use a pastry brush or the back of a spoon to glaze salmon with gochujang sauce.

  5. Broil salmon for 5-7 minutes, rotating pan halfway through. Keep an eye on it. If it starts to burn or smoke, move it to a lower rack.

  6. Let salmon rest for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds. Serve with rice, noodles, or your favorite vegetable.
