Easy Asian Salmon

Even though I now have four kids to love and care for, I still see the merit in preparing homemade dinner most nights.  While most of what I make is far from fancy, it is always healthy and usually pretty tasty.  My goal with weeknight dinners is simple: make something everyone will enjoy while minimizing the after-dinner clean-up.

One of my most favorite weeknight meals is this Asian inspired salmon.  It always feels special and kinda fancy, but it literally requires 10 minutes of prep time.  It is so healthy, too, and I always feel totally satisfied after the meal.  During dinner little Vivian climbs on my lap and eats off my fork.  She must feel like a big girl!

I usually serve this dish with sushi rice (love the texture!) and bok choy quickly sauteed with ginger, garlic and soy sauce.  The fish tastes great the next day, so I always make double what we’ll eat for dinner so we can enjoy it in a salad for lunch.

Asian Salmon

4 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1-3 teaspoons Sriracha, depending on how much you like spice

3 garlic cloves, minced

6 8 oz portions salmon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Whisk ingredients in a small bowl until well combined.  Pour a little onto the bottom of a baking dish (or two), then lay the salmon on top.  Pour the remaining marinade on top of the salmon.

Bake for 18-20 minutes.  Drizzle any sauce left in the pan on top of the rice and fish for extra yummy flavor.
