How to Make Gochujang Glazed Salmon

A Note From feedfeed

I have made this recipe on countless occasions for team dinners and events, and it's a winner every time! Skip the usual simple salmon recipe and swap in this Gochujang Glazed Salmon with Carrots and Bok Choy. If you’re unfamiliar with gochujang, it’s a Korean fermented red chili paste that’s sweet and salty with some underlying spice and umami. I was first introduced to this in culinary school and I immediately fell in love with all the flavors of this condiment. It's been a staple in my pantry ever since.

Just something to keep in mind while working with salmon is, make sure you are sourcing from a trusted and sustainable seafood purveyor. Remove all pin bones using a fish tweezer before baking and wipe any leftover scales with a wet paper towel. Cooking salmon is easy but common to overcook, causing the fillet to be dry. Baking the fish for 25 minutes at 375°F is ideal and yields perfect results with a soft flaky center. For sides, you could use any of your favorite crunchy vegetables; I recommend green beans, snap peas, potatoes, and broccolini florets. 

So, next time you have impromptu guests coming over or need a quick weeknight meal, have this recipe in your back pocket and a delicious dinner will be ready in no time. I love seeing creative recipes from the Feedfeed community and can’t wait to see where you take this version of salmon.
