Toasted Sesame Ginger Salmon

Continued from our hangout the other night! We didn’t broil this because we’ve uh, never broiled anything before. (I’ve broiled grapefruit before, but I was really paranoid about messing up the fish, so we decided to bake it.) Recipe was adapted from here! Next time, we’ll try actually broiling it.

Toasted Sesame Ginger Salmon

-1 1/2 lbs raw salmon
-1/4 cup EVOO
-2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
-2 tbsp rice vinegar
-2 tbsp brown sugar
-2 tbsp soy sauce
-1 tbsp ginger, freshly grated
-1/4 cup honey
-2 garlic cloves, minced
-1-2 tbsp white sesame seeds

1) Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
2) Combine EVOO, sesame oil, rice vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce and ginger in a small bowl. Whisk well. Add garlic and pour liquid in a ziploc bag. Add salmon, making sure that it’s covered in marinade + refrigerate for 30 minutes.
3) Heat oven to 425 and bake until salmon is almost at its desired done-ness (flaky and cooked through!). Add sesame seeds and bake for another 5 minutes.

Here’s a picture of the meal I had at church over the weekend, just for kicks!
