About this recipe

Let’s first talk about some of the ingredients. Gochujang is a Korean chili paste, so it adds a slight amount of heat to the sauce. You can use sriracha instead, but sriracha is much spicier. Gochujang has a sweet, salty and spicy flavor. Perfect for mixing into sauces. You would not want to add gochujang to anything on its own.

Liquid aminos are commonly used as a soy sauce substitute since it’s gluten free. It is a little stronger than soy sauce so if you plan to substitute it in recipes, be careful because it’s not one-for-one substitution. One tablespoon of soy sauce equates to about a 1/2 tablespoon of liquid aminos.

Ingredients

  • 12 oz Scottish salmon, two 6 ounce filets , deboned – but you can leave the skin on
  • ¼ cup vegenaise, regualr mayonnaise will work as well.
  • 1 teaspoon gochujang, you can substitute sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • ½ tablespoon liquid aminos, soy sauce will work as well but you will need to use 1 tablespoon. Also, this recipe will no longer be gluten free.
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • pinch black pepper

Equipment

  • baking sheet
  • small mixing bowl

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Debone your salmon filets and season them with salt and pepper. Option to score the skin to prevent it from buckling and constricting as it bakes.
  • Grab a small mixing bowl and combine vegenaise, gochujang, maple syrup and liquid aminos. Once well mixed, spoon the spicy creamy sauce evenly on top of the salmon filets. Make sure they are both well covered.
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees, then broil for an additional 3 minutes until the everything gets lightly browned on top. This will cook your salmon to a medium-well temperature. If you salmon filet is larger, you may need to bake it for 1-2 more minutes to get to medium well.
  • Serve with a side of rice and veggies of your choice. You can also substitute the rice for cauliflower rice too.
