Perfectly cooked salmon, paired with a Vietnamese sauce. Delicious served with rice and some wilted greens, such a baby bok choy or spinach.
Spoon reduced sauce over salmon and garnish with sliced green onion and cilantro leaves. Serve with fresh lime wedges for drizzling.
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine oil, brown sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce, ginger, lime zest, lime juice and pepper in an oven-proof baking dish just large enough to hold your salmon fillets flat.
Place salmon fillets into dish with sauce, with the flat side that had the skin facing up.
Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until salmon is cooked to your taste. Remove dish from oven, then remove salmon to a serving platter, flipping the salmon so the bottom side is now up.
Place dish with sauce back into the oven under the broiler (about 6 inches from heat) to reduce and thicken the sauce slightly, about another 1-2 minutes or so. Spoon reduced sauce over salmon.
Garnish with green onion and cilantro leaves and serve with lime wedges for drizzling.
