Looking for a super fast and easy weeknight dinner? Then look no further than this honey-soy salmon. It’s done in just 20 minutes! And I have to tell ya… the flavors are spectacular. I love to serve it over rice with the vegetables, then put whatever is left into a container. Yup, just a container filled with rice, salmon, and vegetables. Let the salmon break apart into pieces, and you have an easy meal to heat up later in the week. Just toss it in a pan on the stove to heat up and you have a sort of salmon and vegetable fried rice. YUM!
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup honey
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 lb. skin-on salmon fillet
8 ounces white mushrooms, sliced
1 red bell pepper sliced
1 bunch green onions, sliced into circles
toasted sesame seeds, to garnish
3 cups cooked rice, if desired
DoveWare Casserole Dish
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
1. Preheat your oven to 450° Fahrenheit.
2. In a medium bowl, stir together the vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, honey, chili powder, and mustard. Set aside ½ cup of the sauce for serving.
3. Line the casserole dish with parchment paper. Place the salmon, skin side down, in the casserole dish. Brush it with about 2 tablespoons of the honey sauce.
4. Bake for 6 minutes. While baking, toss the mushrooms, bell pepper, and green onions with the rest of the sauce.
5. After the salmon has baked for 6 minutes, remove it from the oven and scatter the vegetables around it. Brush the salmon with more of the sauce, then pour the rest into the casserole dish with the salmon and veggies (except for the ½ cup set aside for serving).
6. Return the casserole dish to the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes until the vegetables are just tender.
7. When done, lift the fish from the skin. Serve with vegetables, rice if desired, and reserved sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
