1-2 tablespoons peanut oil, can sub vegetable oil
2 cups broccoli florets
1 ½ lbs. salmon, cut into 4 filets. (Skin on or off.)
¼ teaspoon EACH: Smoked paprika, salt, pepper, mustard powder, onion powder
½ teaspoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon peanut oil, can sub olive oil
½ cup beef broth
½ cup chicken broth
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon hot sauce, optional
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Pinch red pepper flakes
3 cups cooked rice, any kind. See notes for cooking tips.
Let the salmon sit out for 15-20 minutes to ensure an even cook. Meanwhile, measure out your ingredients as outlined below:
Combine the salmon seasonings and set aside.
Combine the sauce ingredients in a medium measuring cup with a spout. *Make sure the sauce ingredients are not warm/hot to ensure that you don’t activate the cornstarch. Store in a cool place until ready to use.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Sauté the Broccoli
Heat the oil in a 12-inch oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat and add the broccoli. Cook for 4 minutes, until slightly softened. (Add a splash of oil if needed). Remove and set aside.
Prepare the Salmon
Pat the salmon dry and sprinkle the seasoning over each filet, gently press it onto the surface.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the salmon (skin-side-down if applicable), and sear for 3 minutes.
Decrease heat to medium and add the sauce. Bring to a boil. Allow it to thicken, then reduce heat to medium-low. Use a spoon to baste the salmon as it continues to cook for 2 more minutes.
Add the broccoli back to the skillet.
Transfer to the oven and bake for 7 minutes. Increase heat to a low broil (400°F) and cook for up to 2 more minutes to allow the top to caramelize. Watch it carefully during this time, don’t walk away. Remove from heat.
Spoon the salmon with more glaze from the skillet and let it rest for 5-10 minutes prior to serving. It will increase a few more degrees during this time. Ensure that it reaches 145°F prior to serving.
Transfer to serving plates and serve with rice!
