Baked Asian Salmon in Foil Recipes

Baked Asian Salmon in Foil is an easy weeknight dinner, but is impressive enough for guests on the weekend!

Cuisine : Chinese,
Recipe Yields : 5 servings
Prep time : 10 minutes
Cook time : 25 minutes
Keywords : asian salmon, baked in foil, baked salmon,


  • 1.5 pounds salmon with skin on
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon chili paste
  • 1 Tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 lime freshly squeezed (juice only)
  • 2 cloves garlic (- minced)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger (- minced)
  • salt and pepper (- to taste)
  • brown rice, edamame, cilantro (- to serve )


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet by laying a large piece of foil on it. You will need enough to totally wrap the salmon.
  3. Place salmon on foil, skin side down. Season lightly with salt and pepper (optional). Fold foil partially up along the sides forming a shallow bowl for the marinade.
  4. Mix the marinade by whisking the soy sauce, chili paste, oyster sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, fresh lime juice, garlic, and ginger. Pour over the salmon, making sure the marinade stays in the foil.
  5. Wrap the foil around the salmon, completely covering it.
  6. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, depending on the the thickness of the salmon. Mine took 25 minutes, but it was a thick piece of fish.
  7. Remove from oven, unwrap, and let it sit for 5-7 minutes. Salmon should flake easily with a fork, but be careful to not over-cook. I checked mine at 20 minutes and then baked for 5 more minutes.
  8. Serve with brown rice, cooked edamame, and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro.
