Hoisin Baked Salmon

For the main course, Minoo prepared a Hoisin Baked Salmon. We seldom have seafood recipe in the community kitchen because of the cost of seafood. However, there are many requests to have fish recipes as the members are more health conscious and would like to include more fish in their diet as recommended by the Canadian Heath food guide.

Salmon is an oily fish and it’s rich with protein, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D.


This Hoisin Baked Salmon is a simple and luscious way to prepare salmon. Hoisin sauce is made with ingredients starches (such as sweet potato, wheat or rice), water, sugar, soybeans, white distilled vinegar, salt, garlic and red chili pepper. It does not contain fish despite the name which literally means seafood.

Hoisin sauce is typically used a dipping sauce or spread on Chinese pancake or used as marinates for chicken, etc.


  • 2 pounds salmon steaks or fillets, rinse and pat dry
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup hoisin sauce
