Spicy Baked Salmon

Spicy Baked Salmon with rice, cucumbers, and ginger

This is the easiest weeknight or anytime recipe! Simply mix up the marinade, add in the salmon, and then bake when you are ready to eat. You can serve it with anything you'd like as well. I served mine with brown rice, cucumbers, and some sushi ginger. Would be great with some broccoli or bok choy and white rice too! Details below:


-Let this marinate all day or as long as you have. You could even mix up the marinade a day or two in advance as long as it's in an airtight container


-I don't find the gochuchang super spicy but they do make differing levels of spice so adjust to your liking

-You can double or triple the marinade recipe if you're making a bunch of salmon. This would also be a great sauce for shrimp!

-You could also very easily grill this!!


-I have never had leftovers of this recipe! But if you do, store in an airtight container and reheat in the air fryer, or on the stovetop in a small pan with some added liquid like soy sauce, chicken/beef stock, or even just a little water
