  • 1 inch ginger grated of minced
  • 1 clove garlic grated or minced
  • ½ jalapeño minced
  • ½ teaspoon brown sugar or light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oil neutral, such as grapeseed, avocado or vegetable



  • Create the marinade. Add solid ingredients to the liquid ingredients in a jar or other container and mix well.


  • Pat salmon fillets dry. Brush the marinade over the flesh side of the salmon in a baking dish or on a sheet tray. Cover and let marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Remove the larger pieces of jalapeño, garlic and ginger from the salmon fillets. Pour out the marinade and wipe off the dish or sheet tray or switch the salmon to a clean baking dish. Spray some pan spray or add a bit of oil to the dish and position the salmon on top of it.
  • Evenly brush the mayonnaise over the flesh side of the fish. Sprinkle each fillet evenly with furikake.
  • Place in the oven to bake for 10-20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 125 to 130°F. Serve with lime or lemon wedges.


  • These directions are for a medium to medium-rare salmon. If you prefer a more well-done salmon, cook longer/to your desired doneness.
  • This recipe can be made without mayonnaise if you do not like it. The texture will be slightly less moist, but the furikake will still adhere to the salmon.
  • Try making this dish more or less spicy by adjusting the amount of jalapeño.
  • Cooked salmon can be stored safely in the fridge for 3-4 days. To reheat, place in a 275°F oven for about 15 minutes or until the fish reaches 125-130°F.
  • I do not recommend freezing the finished dish. 
  • To make a full meal, serve alongside some steamed rice and simply sautéed vegetables of your choice.
