Salmon is incredibly healthy, and it holds up to marinades really nicely. I use a simple marinade of mainly honey and soy sauce, with a touch of ginger. When cooked, the marinade is subtle; it allows the flavor of salmon to shine (after all, you just spent good money to get nice filets…you don’t want to mask the taste!). I love this dish and it makes your kitchen smell great when it’s being cooked.

½ cup honey

1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce

1 teaspoon white vinegar

1 teaspoon fresh ginger (grated)

½ teaspoon ground mustard

¼ teaspoon black pepper

3 salmon filets (≈0.5 lb each)

½ cup sesame seeds (toasted)

Mix together the honey, soy sauce, vinegar, fresh ginger, ground mustard, and pepper. Pour this marinade into a resealable plastic bag. Add the fish, seal the bag, and put into the refrigerator. Allow to marinate for a minimum of 1 hour (anywhere from 1 hour to 1.5 hours).

Turn your broiler on and allow to preheat for 10-15 minutes.

Pour the sesame seeds onto a plate. Remove the salmon from the marinade and press the skinless topsides of the salmon filets into the sesame seeds.

Put the sesame coated salmon onto a baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Put the salmon into the broiler for 10-12 minutes, or until cooked.

Serve and enjoy!
