Here’s a fun way to add a little pizazz to your ordinary baked salmon. I used extra crunchy Panko bread crumbs to top these fillets, as well as a tasty glaze. Before adding the bread crumbs, I brushed on a sweet and savory Asian inspired glaze. I made my glaze out of hoisin, which is an Asian BBQ sauce, as well as ginger, soy sauce and sesame seed oil. To add a little spicy kick, you can also add a pinch of red pepper flakes. To go along with it, I served a simple salad. It made the perfect quick and easy weeknight meal.
