Sesame Glazed Baked Salmon

We had this for dinner the other weekend, and it was so delicious! Clearly I have been trying to post about my new apartment and other fun exciting things so my food posts have been piling up, but lucky for you, when I run out of craft posts or home decor posts, you will get more recipes than you could possibly know what to do with!

This salmon was pretty delicious to have not been freshly grilled on the green egg (my favorite form of preparation for any meat!) But with just a few ingredients, you too can have this delicious salmon served up for your family.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds raw salmon
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoon soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, grated
1 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
1-2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Sesame Ginger Honey Glaze (to apply after cooking)
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Pour over salmon.


Instructions:
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack over top. Spray the rack with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl or baking dish, combine olive oil, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, vinegar, brown sugar and whisk well until combined. Add salmon to the dish or place everything in a ziplock bag, then refrigerate and marinate for 30 minutes.

Preheat the broiler in your oven. (Or preheat your grill, etc if you prefer to use something else.)

Remove salmon with kitchen tongs and place directly on the wire rack (I put mine on a piece of tinfoil inside the oven) . Sprinkle with a little bit of salt and pepper, then place under the broiler. Cook for 10-12 minutes, depending on the salmon’s thickness (our’s was just about an inch thick), until opaque and easily flakable with a fork. You can flip the salmon halfway through cooking if desired.

Remove and serve immediately, with a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds and the glaze.

    • the green egg is a smoker/grill. Big in the southern US and it made wonderfully delicious foods, my dad is a master on the green egg, I always joke with him that before he allows any man to marry me, they have to pass his green egg cooking school, because I am such a foodie, especially when it comes to things off of the grill!
