Sriracha Barbecue Salmon with Roasted Asparagus

Salmon is a favorite in our house, especially with my daughter Ava. I came up with this BBQ recipe the other night when I wanted to do something different than my usual Brown Sugar Salmon. It's my kind of recipe: fast, simple, and full of flavor! Use the Sriracha to your taste (or omit it all together as I did for Ava).


Makes 2 servings
  •   1 tablespoon sesame oil
  •   1 garlic clove, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger paste
  •   1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1  tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (or more to taste) Sriracha hot sauce
  •   2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets 
  • 1 bunch asparagus, tough ends removed
  • olive oil
  • sea salt/cracked black pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Rinse salmon, pat dry, and place in a baking dish.
  3.  In a food processor, mix together sesame oil, garlic, ginger, lime juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, ketchup, and Sriracha.  
  4. Pour sauce over salmon filets. 
  5. Spread asparagus on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. *Or use lemon pepper and add fresh lemon zest after roasting.
  6. Bake both asparagus and salmon for 20-25 min. Salmon should flake easily with a fork and be cooked through (or to your desired doneness). 
  7. Serve warm with a side of mushroom couscous. 
Barbecue recipe adapted from Cooking Light.

Clean asparagus and trim tough ends. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle and toss with olive oil. Bake with salmon in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
Optional: Lemon Asparagus- *Use lemon pepper instead of black pepper and add fresh lemon zest after roasting.
I ordered 1lb of salmon at the seafood department and once I was home I cut it into 4 filets. Since it's just my daughter and I, I freeze half for later. Rinse salmon and pat dry. Remove any stray scales or visible bones. Place in an 8X8 baking dish.
I used my favorite Sesame oil for the sauce and then mixed in all other ingredients. Pulse a few times in a food processor until combined. Taste and add more Sriracha for more heat.
Drizzle liberally with sauce and bake at 350 degrees for approx 20 minutes.
Salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork and it is cooked through. 
Serve with roasted asparagus and a side of mushroom couscous.
Ava loves asparagus but only eats the tops! Silly girl!

I am not a fan of
strong fishy flavors so I remove the skin on the bottom of the salmon before serving. Simply use a spatula or fork and gently lift skin and it should slide right off.

  1. That was very brilliant oven baked salmon recipe. It all was adored by us. This had been quite simple and also a dish I would result in the firm. The single real reason I could see right now that this burning off is cooking it too high in warmth. Judge your cooker men and women. When it hamburgers sexy, do not cook it on medium. Mine cooks quite inexpensively, therefore I simply switched down it. I'd lots of quite a yummy curry that fell down along with caramelized attractively. The oven baked salmon was moist, also the flavour and also flaky has been so amazing. I served it over rice with stir-fried snow peas, peas and carrots cooked using a little minced garlic, only just a tiny soy sauce, peanut oil, and a small bit of peppermint oil as well as also a spoonful of toasted sesame oil. What a meal! In the event you would like to find out for a lot much additional oven baked salmon bites, Steak or oven baked salmon using caramelized then you definitely may go to this website too I have lots of fantastic hints in creating poultry bites.
