Hoisin Glazed Salmon and Veggies in Foil

This Hoisin Glazed Salmon in Foil with Veggies recipe couldn’t be easier. Everything is cooked in aluminum foil and baked — which means easy clean up and minimal effort. Dinner is ready and on the table in under 30 minutes!

The salmon gets coated in an easy Hoisin sauce that’s sweet, sour, and tangy. Hoisin makes a wonderful glaze for this salmon. This sauce requires only three simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry — Hoisin, soy sauce, and sesame oil. I brush half of the sauce on the fish before I bake it, and reserve the other half for when the salmon comes out of the oven to season the filet before serving.

While the salmon is cooking, I whip up some rice or quinoa to serve with it and the veggies. And voila! Dinner is served. (Told you it was easy!)

What Exactly Is Hoisin?

Hoisin sauce is a pungent, fragrant, tasty sauce often used in Asian dishes like vegetable stir-fry and grilled meals, as well as marinades. It’s a key ingredient in many Chinese dishes and is sometimes called Chinese barbecue sauce.

Originally a Cantonese condiment, hoisin sauce is typically made from a combination of fermented soybean paste, garlic, vinegar, sesame oil, chiles, and sweetener. It adds a umami flavor to the dishes it’s cooked with, combining sweet, tangy, and spicy elements. It is not made with any animal products, so it’s suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

TIP: Don’t have hoisin on hand? You can make your own! Just whisk together ¼ cup soy sauce, 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter, 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar, 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar, 2 teaspoons sesame oil, 1 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste , and 1 clove minced garlic. (We did not test this method for this recipe with the additional soy sauce and sesame oil, so be careful not to over-season, especially with the soy sauce.)

Ingredients for the 3-Ingredient Hoisin Sauce

To make this super-simple, multi-purpose hoisin sauce, simply combine the following ingredients in a bowl and whisk:

  • 1/4 cup hoisin
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Set sauce aside until time to pour over the salmon and veggies while they bake in the foil.

Ingredients for This Hoisin-Glazed Salmon in Foil with Veggies

For this dish, you’ll need the 3-ingredient hoisin sauce described above as well as the following ingredients:

  • Olive oil: For drizzling on fish and veggies in foil before baking.
  • Sesame Seeds: For garnish, if desired
  • Salt and Pepper: To taste
  • Salmon Filets: You only need two for this recipe. Opt for deboned and wild-caught, if possible.
  • Fresh Mixed Vegetables: You’ll need two cups total. I used a bag of mixed carrots, broccoli, and snap peas. If the pieces of broccoli are large, cut them to make them smaller so the broccoli cooks all the way through with the other veggies.

TIP: Avoid using frozen vegetables, as they will release a lot of water while cooking and result in a soggy, fishy mess. If you have to use frozen, thaw before baking and pat dry.
