Asian Baked Salmon
It’s the dressing what makes a good salad. It’s the gravy over the mashed potato that makes you go for a second round. It’s this awesome pungent sauce over baked salmon that put this recipe on repeat!
In our household we try to eat at least once a week salmon, especially the kids love it. This recipe is born from pantry and basic ingredients. It taste like tropical South East Asian flavours and a hint of Japanese umami. The perfect combo isn’t?
Go try this out yourself! Happy cooking!
