I absolutely love salmon! Here’s my favorite way to cook this omega-3 rich fish. I marinate it with a sweet and savory bulgogi marinade, hence the name – salmon bulgogi. The flavorful marinade works wonderfully with the rich, oily fish.
Bulgogi is a marinated meat dish made with thin slices of beef. However, the sweet and savory marinade works well with any meat or seafood. In the past, I posted a variation made with chicken, dak bulgogi. It’s one of the most popular recipes on my blog.
Buy salmon with skin if you can. The skin helps hold the thin flesh together and helps keep the salmon from drying out while being cooked. Always make sure the fish you buy is fresh.
I cut the salmon thinly for quick marinating and cooking, but you can cut it into any size your want. Simply adjust the marinating and cooking time for larger pieces.

You can cook these relatively thinly cut salmon any way you want. My favorite way is quick broiling. The high heat cooks the fish very fast while giving a nice char, but be careful not to overcook.
If preferred, you can also bake it in the oven at 425°F for 4 to 5 minutes.
It will also be quick to cook the salmon in your skillet, a minute or two on each side.
