My family loves it whenever I prepare salmon dishes for them, and they are among my most requested recipes.

I always indulge them since my salmon recipes are all super simple and don’t require a whole lot of ingredients to prepare, and this recipe for baked salmon in garlic and ginger is no exception.

If salmon is one of your favorite food, you need to try my recipes for salmon teriyaki, broiled miso salmon, and broiled spicy miso mayo salmon.

Ingredients for the salmon with garlic and ginger

1. Salmon fillets

We will need some salmon fillet with skin on. I am using some Alaska sockeye salmon fillets in the photos, hence the bright red color of the fish. :)

2. Aromatics

For the aromatics, we will need garlic and ginger.

3. Sauces and seasonings

We will also need soy sauce, honey, oyster sauce, sesame oil, salt, and white pepper.

Marinate salmon fillets with grated garlic, grated ginger, soy sauce, honey, oyster sauce, sesame oil, salt, and white pepper for at least 2 hours.

Marinating the fish

Start by patting dry the salmon fillets with a kitchen towel or paper towel and place them in a mixing bowl.

Grate the ginger and garlic, then gently rub the fillet with the grated ginger and garlic.

Add the remaining sauce and seasonings (soy sauce, honey, oyster sauce, sesame oil, salt, and white pepper) to coat the salmon fillets.

Wrap the bowl with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.

Bake salmon fillet in a 190 Celsius (375 Fahrenheit) for 12-15 minutes.

Baking the salmon

Remove the marinated salmon from the fridge and let the fillets return to room temperature before baking.

Preheat the oven to 190 Celsius (375 Fahrenheit). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and brush the aluminum foil with a little olive oil to prevent sticking.

Scrape off excess marinade from the salmon, and arrange them on the baking sheet, skin side down.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the fish is cook. Optionally, turn on the broiler at the end to slightly char the surface.

Serving the salmon

Arrange baked salmon fillets on a serving plate. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, chopped scallions/cilantro, and cherry tomatoes.

Serve immediately with steamed white rice.
