I got a big bag of frozen salmon filets at Target the other day. The sale was too good to pass up for such a healthy meal option! I’ve been wondering how to cook it and finally attempted it Sunday night. Apart from some issues with not having the correct ingredients and setting the smoke alarm off at 11:30 pm after taking it from the oven, it was a great recipe. I’ve never cooked fish before apart from stir fried shrimp. This has very good flavoring. I left out the sesame seeds and scallion because I didn’t have any–tasted fine without it.
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
1 scallion, minced
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar (didn’t have this so I used cider vinegar)
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger (or couple dashes of ground ginger)
1 pound center-cut salmon fillet, skinned cut into 4 portions (I used frozen raw salmon servings)
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds,
Preparation: 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.
