Quick Weeknight Meals: Hoisin Salmon with Broccoli-Edamame Slaw

By Carolyn Williams, PhD, RD | May 9, 2019 | Rally Health

It can be hard to find Asian-inspired dishes that aren’t sky-high in sodium, but this one delivers flavor while keeping the total sodium content to 522mg per serving. Once you turn the salmon, start stir-frying the slaw so the whole meal comes together at the same time. Pair with a store-bought, ready to serve brown rice for a more substantial meal. If you’ve got extra edamame, season with a little sea salt and refrigerate for later. Shelled edamame — raw or roasted — is a great snack alternative to chips and crackers and a good source of both fiber and protein.

Serves 4

Cook Time: 9 minutes

Total Time:  18 minutes


4 (4-oz) wild salmon filets,  skin removed

1/8 tsp. kosher salt

2 ½ Tbsp hoisin sauce

2 Tbsp lime juice, divided

¼ tsp garlic powder

1 ½ Tbsp sesame oil

1 ½ Tbsp lower-sodium soy sauce

1 tsp fresh grated ginger or ginger paste

1 ½ cups frozen shelled edamame, thawed

1 (12-oz) bag fresh broccoli slaw

1/3 cup chopped green onions

Toasted sesame seeds (optional)


1. Preheat broiler.

2. Place salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray, and sprinkle with salt. Broil 5 minutes. Combine hoisin sauce, 1 Tbsp lime juice, and garlic powder; brush ½ of hoisin mixture over salmon. Broil an additional 2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Brush remaining hoisin mixture over fish after removing from oven.   

3. While fish cooks, whisk together remaining 1 Tbsp. lime juice, sesame oil, soy sauce, and ginger. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add edamame, broccoli slaw, and green onions; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently, or until broccoli is crisp-tender. Add soy sauce mixture; saute 30 seconds. Remove from heat. Serve salmon over warm slaw.
