Salmon is one of the richest sources of inflammation fighting omega-3 fats, and it’s also one of the few foods naturally rich in vitamin D, which plays a key role in maintaining strong bones.
- Prep time
- Total Time
- • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
- • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- • 1 tablespoon white wine or rice vinegar
- • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
Preheat oven to 425˚ and position a rack to the top spot. Liberally mist a baking sheet with oil spray. Place salmon skin side down (if skin is intact) and roast in the oven on the top rack for about 10 minutes. Set oven to broil and finish under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp the tops, if you’d like them more well done. (A general rule: Cook for about 4 minutes per ½-inch thickness of salmon, or until the internal temperatures reaches 125˚ to 130˚ for medium. Add a few more minutes if you prefer it well done; subtract a few minutes if you want it medium rare.)
While the salmon is baking, in a small bowl, mix together the hoisin sauce, maple syrup, vinegar, and ginger to form a thick glaze. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and brush the hoisin glaze evenly over the fillets. Return the salmon to the oven and bake until the fillets are just opaque in the center, about 5 minutes. Transfer to platter; serve immediately.
