Baked Soy Sesame Salmon
Hi all! I can not believe my this salmon recipe isn't on my website yet. It's a staple I make for clients all the time and they completely freak out over it! Little do they know how simple it is to make. But wow does it pack a punch! As it's FULL of incredible Asian influenced flavors and comes together easily for a healthy delicious dinner. You can leave out the miso paste and substitute the tamari for coconut aminos if you are soy free and it will still be just as delicious. Serve it with some coconut rice and roasted broccoli for the fam!
This recipe makes enough marinade for 2lbs of salmon (roughly 4 adult sized pieces) but you can cut it in half if you are just making 2 pieces.
You will need:
4 1/2lb pieces of Wild Alaskan King Salmon (or salmon of your choice)
1/2 cup organic tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
3 tbsp rice vinegar
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp Thai sweet chili sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp organic white miso paste
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
Sesame seeds to serve
Diced a callions to serve
Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl and pour over your pieces of salmon in a baking dish.
Bake a preheated oven at 400 F, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
Switch the oven from bake to broil on high and broil the salmon for an extra 5 minutes to get it nice and browned and caramelized on top.
Then remove from the oven and sprinkle over your sesame seeds and diced scallions.
Enjoy with coconut rice, brown rice or vegetable fried cauliflower rice and roasted broccoli.
