Sesame Soy Salmon

Salmon has a naturally strong flavor which holds up nicely against this savory marinade. Allowing the fish to marinate long enough helps to meld the flavors together for a cohesive dish. The addition of a crunchy vegetable base adds interesting texture and lots of flavor.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 15 min
  • Chill Time : 2 hour
  • Ready Time : 2 hour, 30 min


2 Servings


  • Two 4-5oz salmon filets
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds, toasted
  • 2 tsp peanuts, toasted
  • 2 whole scallions, chopped


  1. Whisk soy sauce, sesame oil and rice wine vinegar to combine
  2. Using a microplane or box grater, grate the garlic and ginger and add to the soy mixture to create a marinade
  3. Coat the fish in the marinade
  4. Place the fish in the refrigerator, covered, from 2-4 hours up to 12 hours
  5. Place the fish and remaining marinade in an oven safe skillet or on a baking sheet
  6. Roast the fish in an oven preheated to 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until the  fish is cooked to your liking
  7. Toast the peanuts and sesame seeds over low heat until just golden brown
  8. Plate with fish, garnish with peanuts, sesame seeds and scallions, serve with your favorite green vegetable or seasoned slaw.
