Asian Sesame Salmon

The first bite of this salmon had the whole family saying, “Wow”. Daniela, who is normally my Mikey, did not want to try it at first, but once the bribery kicked in, she discovered how much she liked it! What a super quick, healthy, and filling dish! I’ll be making this again and again . . .


2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp minced onion
3/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
1/3 cup of honey
1/3 cup sliced green onions (optional)

2 Tbs soy sauce
2 lbs salmon filet


Preheat oven to 375. Mix honey, green onions, soy sauce, and all of the spices ( with the exception of the red pepper, if using) in a small bowl until well blended. Add red pepper to taste.

Place salmon in foil-lined 13×9-inch baking dish. Spoon honey mixture evenly over salmon.

Roast salmon for 20 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Baste with remaining honey mixture after about 10 minutes.

Serves 6
