Easy tender and flavorful Orange Sesame Salmon baked in foil in a sweet and salty Asian glaze.
I’ve been battling this stubborn flu for over two weeks so I didn’t have enough time to share any traditional recipes with you guys this year but you can find a ton over on this CNY round-up from last year.
Chinese New Year is my favorite, after Christmas since the kids have so much fun! We’ll be visiting both sides of our family for our big celebratory feasts and there will be some sort of fish dish on the table because it’s considered very auspicious.
I make salmon at least once a week and my easy go-to way is baking it up in foil along with some seasonings.
It’s the best for those busy weeknights and it makes cleanup a breeze!!
You just whisk together a sweet and salty glaze made with honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, orange juice and some fresh ginger and garlic. You can totally add some Sriracha for a kick of spice too – I usually do 🙂
Pour it over the salmon filet, wrap it up in foil and pop it in the oven! It bakes up perfectly fork tender and full of flavor!
Serve along with some rice and your favorite veggies and dinner is set!
Happy Chinese New Year!
