This simple yet spectacular recipe for Korean Glazed Salom in Foil will be your new go-to! Quick and easy for weeknights yet impressive enough for guests.
Ingredients
  • 4 salmon fillets or 1 whole salmon fillet (about 2 pounds)
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 TBS garlic paste (you can also use minced garlic - see notes)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 TBS Gochujang
  • 2 TBS soy sauce
  • 1 TBS rice wine vinegar
  • 1 TBS sesame oil
  • 3 scallions (green onions) sliced for garnish
  • Chopped parsley for garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Place foil on a baking sheet and spray the foil with cooking spray or brush super lightly with olive or grapeseed oil. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl combine all glaze ingredients and whisk until smooth and incorporated.
  4. Season salmon on both sides with salt and pepper.
  5. Brush the foil with a bit of the glaze, right where you will place the salmon and place salmon pieces right onto it, allowing the "prettiest side to face up.
  6. Pour ¾ of the sauce onto the salmon and brush it all over, fully coating it.
  7. Close up the foil, leaving just a bit in the center open acting like a vent (about an inch or two). Bake for 12 minutes.
  8. Quickly remove baking sheet from the oven, turn your broiler on high, open the salmon fully and pop it back in under the broiler just until it begins to brown (about 2 minutes). Quickly glaze the salmon again with the remaining glaze, pop it back under the broiler for another 1-2 minutes to allow the glaze to caramelize a bit.
  9. Serve immediately, sprinkling with scallions and or parsley.
Notes
In my opinion garlic paste gives the best flavor is glazes and many marinades. It can't burn and become bitter like minced garlic can. Gourmet Garden makes an amazing garlic paste. Garlic is harvested and then turned into a paste. I ALWAYS have it on hand. Click here to see the product. No affiliation, I just love their products!

If you want extra sauce for rice or you just like a lot of sauce on your fish, up the sauce ingredients by half.
