Salmon baked in a sweet and thick Asian inspired glaze, served with Lime Cilantro Cauliflower Rice!
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time13 mins
Total Time23 mins
- 6 pieces of fresh salmon about 2" wide/4 ounce
- 1/2 cup Brown Swerve
- 1/2 cup Liquid Aminos
- 1 teaspoon Sambal plain or garlic
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons fresh ginger grated
- 1 teaspoon fresh garlic grated
- Juice of 1/2 lime
- Optional: Garnish with sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 400F.
Mix all the ingredients in a cup and into a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until reduced by by about a third. It should be on the thick and sticky side.
Place the salmon (skin side down) on a wire baking rack sprayed with nonstick spray and lined with foil to make cleanup much easier! Brush the salmon with the glaze on all sides and bake for 10 minutes.
Remove the salmon from the oven and increase the temperature to 450F. Brush some more of the glaze over the tops and bake for another 3-5 minutes on the top rack of your oven. Watch it closely, to make sure it doesn't burn!
Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving. I like to serve mine with my Lime Cilantro Cauliflower Rice.
