Ingredients

  • ¼ cup light soy sauce

  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey

  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 pound salmon fillets

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds

Directions

  1. Whisk soy sauce, honey, ginger, and garlic together in a bowl until marinade is evenly mixed. Set aside 1/4 of the marinade.

  2. Place salmon fillets in a shallow dish; pour the remaining marinade over the salmon. Cover dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 5 minutes.

  3. Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  4. Remove salmon from marinade, shaking to remove excess marinade, and place, skin-side up, into the hot oil; cook for 4 minutes. Discard unused marinade in the shallow dish. Flip salmon and drizzle the reserved marinade over salmon; sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  5. Cook until fish flakes easily with a fork, 5 to 7 minutes. Flip salmon, remove skin, and cook 1 minute more.
