This is hands-down one of our favorite seafood dishes. The zip of the Chinese mustard and the sweet brown sugar incorporate to make an irresistible zesty sauce for this Zesty Asian Salmon, and my family asks for this at least once a month, more during the Lenten season. We enjoy this salmon with jasmine rice and a vegetable like string beans.
Zesty Asian Salmon
4 Salmon Steaks
2 Tbsp. olive oil
6 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 Tbsp. Chinese hot mustard
1 Tbsp. Rice vinegar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Brush salmon steaks with approximately 1 Tbsp of the olive oil. Bake salmon for about 25 minutes. Combine brown sugar, soy sauce, mustard, vinegar, and the remaining olive oil. Brush the Zesty Asian Salmon with some of the sauce and bake about five minutes more. Heat the remaining sauce in the microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes. Serve with extra sauce to drizzle on the rice! If the sauce is too spicy, reduce the amount of Chinese mustard in the sauce. For another Asian treat, try Joyce Chen’s famous Chinese Beef and Broccoli.
