Asian Glazed Sheet Pan Salmon

Fresh salmon filets drizzled in a paleo-friendly, slightly sticky, soy-flavored glaze is baked in less than 15 minutes on a sheet pan! The ideal weeknight meal!

I’m SO excited to be bringing you my very first salmon recipe!!!! Only took me 32 years to get on the salmon train but ladies and gents, I’m here.

Tyler has been saying “hallelujah” for weeks absolutely over the moon that I’ve finally given in, LOL. I can’t blame my tastebuds for having an aversion to salmon (literally, forever), and I reaallllyyy cannot tell you what has changed but nevertheless, I’m on board. And SO on board with this easy, sheet pan recipe!

As a complete newbie to cooking salmon, I reached out to my SIL (an amazing chef herself) and our go-to celebrity inspiration, Ina Garten, for a base recipe. I tried out Ina’s Asian Grilled Salmon recipe and loved but wanted to tweak slightly — adding honey for stickiness to really create a nice glaze, adjusting the measurements to increase the tanginess (hello mustard!) and figuring out how to translate to a sheet pan, oven-baked recipe.

The result? An addicting, soy-flavored, slightly sweet salmon that bakes in 15 minutes! I loved how this recipe turned out so much that I made it twice in one week haha! I’ve really turned a new leaf. Love it!

Here’s how you’ll make this Asian Glazed Sheet Pan Salmon:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Whisk together glaze ingredients in a bowl ideally with a spout.
  3. Place salmon filets onto sheet pan lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray.
  4. Pour half of glaze over salmon.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on your desired doneness.
  6. Add more glaze over salmon before serving!

I hope you love this recipe as much as we do! Even though its insanely easy to make and great for weeknights, this sheet pan salmon would be perfect for Valentine’s Day — what’s more romantic than having no dishes to do?!
