Hoisin Glazed Salmon

thumb_18_content_mainSalmon is one of the true superstars in the world of nutrition. It’s a valuable source of omega-3 fatty acids, which enhance heart health, improve memory, reduce inflammation, and promote healthy joints, skin, and mood. It is also one of the few natural food sources of vitamin D, a critical nutrient that optimizes bone health.


  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon grated or finely minced fresh ginger
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)


Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and coat the foil with oil spray.

In a small bowl, mix together the hoisin sauce, maple syrup, vinegar, and ginger to form a thick glaze.

Place the salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them evenly. Bake for 10 minutes.

Remove the baking sheet from the oven and smear 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.
