Salmon is hands down one of my favorite ways to put a quick dinner on the table, and this Sticky Asian Salmon dinner is no exception. It is flavorful and is simple to put together. The salmon is quickly marinaded in common pantry staples like coconut aminos (a soy-free soy sauce alternative) and honey and then quickly broiler up before brushing on some of the reduced sticky marinade! Serve with a simple side of steamed or roasted veggies and dinner is served!

What to Serve With It

Because salmon is such a quick dish to make, it’s best to serve with either a prepped ahead veggie dish (we like to roast a big batch of veggies at the beginning of the week to use throughout the week) or something that takes just a few seconds to put together, like a salad!

Some other options are to serve with a quick cole slaw, like this one or this one, some zucchini noodles or other veggie noodles, or some cauliflower rice.
