Sesame Ginger Salmon

Leslie's Featured Recipes.
This Asian-inspired salmon recipe is a favourite in my house.  It also works well if you bake this salmon in a 400° F (200° C) oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until salmon flakes with a fork.

Sesame Ginger Salmon


Quantity Ingredients
1/4 cup / 50 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp / 15 ml sodium-reduced soy sauce
2 tsp / 10 ml sesame oil
1 tsp / 5 ml lemon zest
1 tsp / 5 ml grated fresh ginger root
1 tsp / 5 ml honey
1 clove garlic, crushed
4 4 ounce (120 g) salmon fillets


In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, soy sauce, sesame oil, lemon zest, ginger, honey and garlic.

Place salmon fillets in a shallow dish;  drizzle with sesame ginger mixture and set aside to marinate for 20 minutes.

Heat a skillet over high heat. When pan is hot, add salmon fillets with sesame ginger mixture and reduce heat to medium; cover and cook for 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until fish is cooked through and flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Drizzle salmon with any remaining sauce in pan; serve hot.
