Sesame Ginger Salmon

My whole family loves salmon and this is definitely one of my favorite recipes.  It only takes about 10 minutes to cook and is so flavorful!  Don't forget to let this marinate for at least 30 minutes.  A simple vegetable side and some wild rice pair is all you need to round out this meal.  I buy my wild caught salmon at Costco, it's only $8.99/lb for their frozen wild caught Sockeye salmon, compared to about $14.00 everywhere else.

  • 1 1/2 pounds raw salmon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1-2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 4 green onions, sliced

Sesame Ginger Honey Glaze

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds


Combine olive oil, toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar, brown sugar/coconut sugar, soy sauce, garlic and ginger in a large glass measuring cup or medium bowl and whisk to combine.  Place salmon in a gallon ziplock bag or large baking dish and pour marinade over top, place in the fridge and let marinate for at least 30 minutes.  

Combine ingredients for glaze and mix and set aside.

Preheat oven to broil.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with olive oil.  Remove salmon from the bag or baking dish and place on the pan skin side down.  Cook for 10-12 minutes.  There is no need to flip it.  

Remove salmon from oven, plate, drizzle with glaze and top with toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onions.
