Broiled Korean Barbecue Salmon – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I have seen incredible popularity of Gochujang or Korean red pepper chili paste over the last year, there’s even a Gochujang Sriracha sauce in my local grocery store.  I have a handful of recipes here on my blog because I am a big advocate of this fermented mildly spicy sauce that works wonders in so many dishes, especially quick-prep meals.

I think most of us are looking for quick, fresh and delicious mealtime saviors that make us feel good about cooking without a huge production.  Even though I love to cook there are days when I want a good meal fast, and that’s when this recipe really hits home.

Broiling fish is as easy as lining a sheet pan with foil and placing your fish on top, and then sticking it under the heating element.  However, there’s broiled fish and then there’s BROILED fish.  This recipe has a quick Korean barbecue sauce to top the fish.  The sauce is a bit spicy, but it won’t knock your socks off, it just adds a layer of  sublime heat on top.

So, let’s get broiling tonight!  The entire recipe is done in 10 minutes or less and if you throw a few veggies on the broiler pan – your job is done.
