Sesame Ginger Salmon with Soy Honey Glaze
1 pound Atlantic salmon (either the whole fillet or two 8-ounce fillets)
1/4 cup vegetable oil (or olive or canola oil)
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, grated
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the Soy Honey Glaze –
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
Pinch of garlic powder (optional)
To garnish –
1-2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
3 green onions, sliced
1. In a bowl, combine oil, toasted sesame oil, brown sugar, soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, and garlic. Place the salmon in a baking dish or in a zip top bag, and pour in the marinade. Refrigerate and marinate for at least 30 minutes, up to 2 hours.
2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack over the top. Spray the rack with cooking spray.
3. Preheat the broiler in your oven. Place the salmon on the wire rack, season with kosher salt and black pepper, and place directly under the broiler. If baking the whole fillet, broil for 10-12 minutes depending on thickness. Turn over once during broiling for even cooking.
4. To make the glaze – combine honey, soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, ginger, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Pour over salmon.
5. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onions. Serve with white rice and/or vegetables.
