This quick Asian salmon recipe uses the sauce for both glazing the salmon and tossing with the broccoli. Serve over rice noodles or brown rice tossed with sesame oil and scallions.

  • 1½ tablespoons toasted (dark) sesame oil
  • 1½ tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari
  • 1½ tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 8 cups large broccoli florets with 2-inch stalks attached (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1¼ pounds wild salmon, cut into 4 portions
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk oil, tamari, vinegar, ginger and ⅛ teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add broccoli and toss to coat. Transfer to the prepared pan using tongs or a slotted spoon, leaving as much marinade as possible in the bowl. Whisk molasses into the remaining marinade.
  3. Roast the broccoli for 5 minutes. Move it to one side of the pan and place salmon on the other side. Season the salmon with the remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt and brush with the molasses glaze. Roast until the salmon is just cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes more. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
