Salmon with Pilsner Asian Glaze


  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup pilsner beer
  • 4-6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. corn starch
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp chili flakes red pepper will work. I used Aleppo and Urfa Biber
  • 2 tsp olive oil split in half
  • 1 large salmon fillet or 2-3 small-sized filets
  • pinch sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Sautee garlic and ginger in saucepan over medium heat in 1 tsp of olive oil until fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.

  3. Add in the vinegar, beer, honey, chilis, soy sauce, and corn starch and whisk to combine well. Bring to a boil for about 5 minutes until sauce thickens.

  4. Meanwhile, place salmon in an oven-safe dish or on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tsp of olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt.

  5. Brush the salmon with about half the glaze and bake in the oven for about 10 - 12 minutes until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Brush remaining glaze on the salmon. Serve with rice and a garden salad, and a mug of pilsner beer.
