HONEY-SOY BROILED SALMON
Updated: Aug 21, 2019
I swore I posted this recipe before, but I can’t seem to find it….so clearly I am going crazy. I am surprised it took me so long to post this one from EatingWell.
I never used to eat salmon, I even used to avoid it.
It was always the fishiest in my head, but I don’t ever remember trying it. I saw this one day on EatingWell and loved the ingredients. I thought maybe I could learn to like salmon, if I cooked it myself.
So here I was, scared to even touch salmon and I made this recipe. The minute I could smell the honey caramelize, I knew I was going to love it. I was right.
1 scallion, minced
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 pound center-cut salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 4 portions (they can skin it where you buy it - highly recommend having them do this for you)
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
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.
