Since my daughter loves ginger and wasabi on her sushi, I made her Ginger Wasabi Salmon with her favorite Garlic Parmesan Air Fryer Asparagus.
When my 20 year old daughter comes in town from college, I always make her favorite dinner…salmon and asparagus.
I do always try and mix it up by making different salmon dishes.
How to make Ginger Wasabi Salmon
The sauce is only a few simple ingredients, and I actually had all of these already…yes, even the wasabi sauce!
It’s great as a dip or on sandwiches and wraps.
In a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, honey, ginger paste, and wasabi sauce.
If you don’t have wasabi sauce, you could substitute wasabi powder, just in a smaller amount.
You can add more or less wasabi sauce according to your taste.
Place four salmon fillets on a lined baking sheet, skin side down.
Brush some of this sauce over top and keep the rest to drizzle over top when serving.
Brush again halfway through cooking in a 425 degree oven for 12 minutes.
We like the top to get nice and golden brown, so I always turn the broiler on high during the last minute or two of cooking.
As you can see…this is why we lined the baking sheet! Easy clean up 🙂
The asparagus only took 10 minutes to cook, so timing was perfect with this meal.
As soon as I put the salmon in the oven, I started the asparagus and it was all done at the same time!
We were feeling a little fancy and sprinkled some sesame seeds over top, and plated this like we were rock stars 😉
A little drizzle of the sauce, some of the asparagus, and the Ginger Wasabi Salmon right over top.

Ginger Wasabi Salmon
A flavorful ginger wasabi sauce that pairs perfectly with salmon
- 4 salmon fillets (approx. 5 oz per piece)
- 2 1/2 Tbsps soy sauce
- 1 1/2 Tbsps honey
- 1 1/2 Tbsps ginger paste or fresh grated ginger
- 1 to 1 1/2 Tbsps wasabi sauce (more or less according to taste, 1 to 1 1/2 tsps wasabi powder could be substituted if you don't have wasabi sauce)
Place the salmon fillets on a lined baking sheet skin side down.
In a bowl mix together the soy sauce, honey, ginger, and wasabi sauce. Divide this mixture in half. Brush half over top of the salmon fillets before cooking and again halfway through cooking, set aside the other half.
Place the baking sheet into a 425 degree oven for 12 minutes. If you want the top charred, turn broiler on high on for the last minute or two. When removing salmon from baking sheet, slide a spatula between the salmon and salmon skin and it will easily separate.
Serve with remaining ginger wasabi sauce on the side for dipping.
