This was created for a seafood marinade or rub challenge.I didnt want a heavy marinade on my salmon as the fish is a beautiful tasting fish to begin with. If you want it stonger tasting with a bit more heat,add a bit more salsa. I used my own hot salsa but a store bought one will work.


  1. Combine the ingredients and let stand for a while.I leave mine about 30 minutes.
  2. Brush over your salmon filets or steaks.
  3. Place in a pan in a preheated 350 oven
  4. Bake until done about 30 minute.

I was intrigued by the combination of Asian flavors and salsa. I knew I had to try this recipe! I think I'd classify it as a sauce instead of a marinade, but whatever you want to call it, my family calls it delicious! I had two sockeye salmon fillets and a potato side dish that cooked for 30 minutes also, but I think my fish was probably done at about 25, so I'll check it a bit sooner next time. We really loved the balance between the spicy salsa (I used a chunky variety) and the sweetness of the hoisin sauce. This is the best topping for salmon we've had in a while. Thanks for creating this one, Bren! Made & enjoyed for ZWT-6 Team Xtra Hot Dishes! :D

I made this for the DM and myself and we thoroughly enjoyed. I used a mild salsa (as the DM is not big on spicy) but added some chilli to my portion to perk it up. The only recommendation I would give is to lightly oil your baking pan as I had the salmon stick and it broke up a little in getting it out. Thank you bigbadbrenda, made for I Recommend and recommended by Boomette.

Nice sauce/marinade. My fish, however, was very overdone.
