This easy salmon dinner proves that fresh, flavorful, and quick are all possible on a weeknight. It’s all in the smart prep—you’ll coat salmon with a sweet-hot scallion glaze and quickly roast it while steaming jasmine rice until it’s perfectly fluffy. Then, alongside is a crunchy cucumber salad with intriguing flavor, thanks to a clever marinade. It combines spicy ginger, rich toasted sesame oil, and fragrant fresh basil. Not only is it delicious, it leaves you with more time to enjoy the evening, since it comes together in under 30 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Step 2

Place salmon, skin side down, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt. Stir together sweet chili sauce and scallions in a small bowl; spoon over salmon. Bake until salmon is opaque and cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.

Step 3

Toss cucumber with onion, basil, vinegar, oil, ginger, and remaining ½ teaspoon salt in a bowl. Serve cucumber salad with salmon and rice.
