  1. Make marinade - Chop green onions. Mix with soy sauce, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil, and brown sugar. Whisk in cooking oil. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Brussels sprouts - Prep as directed. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Salmon - Rinse and dry fish. Pour sesame-soy marinade (remember to use only salmon's portion) into a baking dish and place salmon non-skin side down into the marinade. Cover and marinade for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day. (Can be done 1 day ahead)


  1. Preheat oven to 425F (218C) degrees.
  2. Toss brussels sprouts with marinade and spread out onto a sheet pan. Roast in oven for 25 to 30 minutes, giving a shake midway through.
  3. Bake salmon in marinade for 12 to 15 minutes (you can just leave it in the same baking dish). You can time it so that the salmon and brussels sprouts finish around the same time.
  4. Finish brussels sprouts with lemon juice and season with salt and pepper fresh out of the oven. Flip over baked salmon and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve salmon with lemon wedges over brussels sprouts.

Didn't turn out as great the second time I made it. Brussel sprouts didn't char as much as last time (maybe i needed more marinade). Salmon was undercooked with 15 mins. Brussel sprouts came out amazing! Super charred. I added some sriracha to the marinade and added less sugar since that already has some. Still needed to add red pepper flakes for the salmon (we like spice). Salmon came out well too. No other modifications.

Doubled the marinade: followed recipe amounts for overnight marinade, but added the extra sauce to the salmon pan right before baking. I think this was a good tweaks. Brussels are not typically a favorite, but we loved these! Be careful not to make this dish too lemon-heavy. We all really like this dish; marked as a favorite!

Very very quick to make! The marinade went well with both items. I had large Brussels sprouts so cut them into quarters, which meant more surface area for delicious sauce and crispiness!

This was very tasty! The Brussel sprouts got perfectly carmelized. Just make sure to cook them on some foil!
