A sweet, tangy and salty mixture of soy sauce, rice vinegar and honey does double-duty as marinade and sauce. Toasted sesame seeds provide a nutty and attractive accent. Make it a meal: Serve with brown rice and sautéed red peppers and zucchini slices.

Ingredients

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk scallion, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and ginger in a medium bowl until the honey is dissolved. Place salmon in a sealable plastic bag, add 3 tablespoons of the sauce and refrigerate; let marinate for 15 minutes. Reserve the remaining sauce.

  • Preheat broiler. Line a small baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.

  • Transfer the salmon to the pan, skinned-side down. (Discard the marinade.) Broil the salmon 4 to 6 inches from the heat source until cooked through, 6 to 10 minutes. Drizzle with the reserved sauce and garnish with sesame seeds.

Tips

Tips: How to skin a salmon fillet: Place skin-side down. Starting at the tail end, slip a long knife between the fish flesh and the skin, holding down firmly with your other hand. Gently push the blade along at a 30° angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either.

To toast sesame seeds, heat a small dry skillet over low heat. Add seeds and stir constantly, until golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool.

People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.

This is a very good easy and delicious recipe. We found this some time ago in one of the issues of Eating Well and it has become one of our favorite salmon recipes that we enjoy often. The soy sauce honey and rice vinegar marinade is extremely good. Just watch toasting the sesame seeds they toast quickly but I would recommend not skipping this as they add the finishing touch that makes this an outstanding dish. Read More

Fantastic dish! My very picky 14 year old so had seconds which automatically makes this recipe a family favorite! As a side I made a stir-fry with rice as a base and along with a quick side salad this recipe will be at the least a monthly standard. Read More

Great recipe! 30 minutes was plenty of time to marinate the salmon. I used a handful of chopped candied ginger because it was that or ground ginger and I figured the extra sweetness would go well with the honey. Yum! Read More
