Oh heyyy there you gorgeous asian bowl . I see ch’youuu and that perfect glossy honey glaze and flaky salmon. Your sweet and saltines is looking GOOOOD tonight!
Seriously, though. I LOVE Asian food. Adore it. It comes from countless Friday night dinners at my Obachan’s house growing up. She lives just a few minutes away and my cousins, aunts, and uncles would all pile into her house and eat delicious home cooked Japanese food for hours on end. Everything was fresh and made with love- you could taste it.
I always tend to come back to Asian food. After our two week trip to Norway, I was basically pounding on the table for a bowl of rice while Kyle was craving a good ol’ fashion burger. After I had stuffed my face with some sushi to get the immediate need-to-eat NOW cravings settled down, I got to work on creating an Asian-inspired recipe that was not only easy (hollaaa at me 20 minute recipe!!), but also bursting with that perfect sweet and salt flavor combination. Just look at that perfect glaze, guys!
This recipe is as simple as throwing your salmon in the oven to bake and combining the sauce ingredients in a small pot and stirring. Once your salmon is done in about 15 minutes, you coat coat coat it with plenty of your honey orange glaze and serve over rice. Voila! So easy, fast, and delicious.
