Here’s another salmon recipe to add to your rotation — Sheet Pan Gochujang Glazed Salmon! The glaze on this salmon has the perfect balance of sweetness with a little hint of spice that I know you will just love. Plus, you can enjoy this sheet pan meal as-is or serve it as a bowl with a grain, kimchi, and any other toppings you desire.

Salmon is on our dinner table almost weekly. However, I am always trying to think of new ways to flavor it. Gochujang has become a staple in my pantry and I love the amount of flavor it can add to simple dishes and it really makes this salmon taste beyond delicious. And since gochujang typically comes in a big container, be sure to use the leftover gochujang for these Gochujang Grilled Chicken Lettuce Wraps.

glaze ingredients:

  • Gochujang Paste
  • Maple Syrup
  • Rice Vinegar
  • Sesame Oil
  • Coconut Aminos

Additionally, I love how perfectly cooked the salmon is when baked in the oven. It’s an easy, no-fuss method that always works perfectly. Plus, I love roasting the broccolini on the same sheet pan to simplify things. Less dishes = a win!

step one: make the glaze

After preheating your oven, you’ll start by whisking all of your glaze ingredients.

step two: prepare the sheet pan

Next, add the broccolini and salmon the sheet pan and season both according to the recipe below! Bake until the salmon flakes easily with a fork and the broccolini is tender.

step three: serve and enjoy!

While you can enjoy this sheet pan as is, I also like to serve it in bowls with steamed rice and kimchi. So delicious!

recipe FAQs:

is gochujang gluten-free?

It can be! Gochujang is often made with a small bit of wheat to help the paste firm up, making it a little difficult to find a gluten-free option, but the Coconut Secret brand, which is made with coconut aminos, can be found online and at various grocers.

how should I serve this?

You can enjoy the sheet pan as-is or you can serve in bowls with prepared rice or cauliflower rice and kimchi!

    Super easy recipe. Love a good sheet pan recipe for an easy weeknight meal. I served with steamed rice from Trader Joe’s. Thanks Alex for a delicious recipe!

    I make this a couple times a month- it’s one of our favorite recipes! Super easy on a week night, and so flavorful. I don’t like broccolini so I sub Brussels sprouts, and don’t have to change the cooking time. Thanks so much!!

  3. 5 stars
    This was delicious and came together quickly for an easy weeknight dinner. Will definitely be making again!!! We are salt sensitive here so I will skip the salt on the salmon next time. Just a personal preference!

    This is so freaking good and so easy to throw together. I used regular broccoli, and it came out crisp but cooked. The sauce is amazing. I’m excited to try using it on other things.
