This quick and easy Korean-inspired Gochujang-Glazed Salmon recipe is cooked in the broiler, perfect for weeknight cooking because it’s less than 10 minutes to cook.
The glaze is so tasty it would be great with other types of fish as well! Have I mentioned I’m obsessed with Korean food? Yes, I think I did way back when I posted these Korean Beef Bowls and this Korean-Inspired Grilled Chicken Breast recipe. So I was really excited when I got my hands on the cookbook, Korean Food Made Simple (affil link) by Judy Joo which is where I got this recipe.
Salmon is one of my favorite fish, it’s super healthy and loaded with omegas. My kids also share my love of salmon, but if salmon isn’t your thing this would also be great with black cod or Chilean sea bass.
One essential ingredient you will need is Gochujang Sauce (affil links). It’s a Korean condiment that’s a little spicy and sweet, and has very distinct flavor only found in Korean cuisine. It also comes in a paste which requires you to thin it down. I use Annie Chun’s Gochujang Sauce since it’s available in my local supermarket and it’s ready-to-use, or buy it on Amazon.
The recipe for this is simple – make the glaze, broil the fish 2 minutes, brush the fish with glaze then broil an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Doesn’t get easier than that!
