Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 - 2 pounds salmon fillets
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 6 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • sliced green onions, for garnish
  • sesame seeds, for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a small sauce pan, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, and rice wine vinegar and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Stir and cook for five minutes.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and water, mixing well. Add to the pan along with the pineapple juice, and allow mixture to return to a simmer. Continue cooking for 5-10 more minutes until mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  • Pat salmon fillets dry with a paper towel and place on the prepared cookie sheet. Spoon glaze generously over the tops of each fillet. You will have some left over!
  • Place pan in the upper half of the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes. Remove pan from oven and add a small amount of leftover glaze to the top of each fillet. Turn oven broiler to high and broil the salmon for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  • Garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
