Korean Gochujang Salmon w/ Salad (고추장 연어 샐러드)
When we feel like eating something healthy and light, we like to eat a simple salad with a protein. Usually our salad base is pretty much the same, but I like to mix up our protein and the sauces used. This is an oven baked salmon recipe with a Korean-inspired gochujang (Korean chili paste) sauce. Sweet and spicy! It goes well with salad as well as rice!
Ingredients (2 servings)
Salad mix for 2 servings *
2 salmon fillets
A pinch of salt & pepper
2 tablespoons of Gochujang (Korean chili paste)
1 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of sesame
1 teaspoon of sesame oil
1 teaspoon of mirin or cooking wine
* I used mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, roasted broccoli, and button mushrooms. For dressing, I used 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper. Feel free to mix it up to your liking!
Preheat your oven to 180°C (~350°F).
Add a pinch of salt & pepper to your salmon fillets.
Top off your salmon fillets with your Gochujang sauce.
Bake salmon fillets in the oven for 20-30minutes depending on the size and thickness of your fillets.

Add the salmon fillets to your salad mix.
