Food52 Review: This recipe had me rooting for it: I had most of the ingredients already at home, and while I usually add in a generous margin to “recipe time,” 30 minutes from start to finish for this salmon seemed absolutely fool proof! (It was.) Don’t overthink the straightforward sauce! Busy wondering if some citrus was needed, I swapped peanut for canola oil, and lined my baking dish with parchment (my go-to default), which may have cost me some “sizzle.” The lively ginger and scallion based sauce was perfect with the salmon and didn’t need anything else. There were no leftovers.Kristen Hall

In This Recipe

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425° F.
  2. In a baking dish, rub salmon with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until center is just barely pink.
  3. Meanwhile, combine scallions, ginger, soy sauce, canola oil, sherry, and fish sauce in a small bowl. Whisk together. When salmon is done, pull out of oven and immediately pour sauce over, letting it sizzle.
  4. Serve with any vegetables. I pan-roasted some Brussels sprouts with salt, pepper, and splash of balsamic.

Made this for dinner last night, it was delicious and well received by my family. Dry vermouth instead of sherry, and a leek in place of the scallions because the scallions I thought were in my veg drawer were not there. I used a convection oven, so the cooking time was shorter. I started checking at about 12 minutes, the salmon was done before 20, but I'm not sure how much before. Served with a brown rice blend and salad.

Sounds like 25 mins @425 is a while lotta cooking time. I'm going to try these ingredients in a skillet so I can keep a closer eye on NOT overcooking it.
