  • 1 1/2 pounds raw salmon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 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


  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack over top. Spray the rack with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl or baking dish, combine olive oil, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, vinegar, brown sugar and whisk well until combined. Add salmon to the dish or place everything in a zip lock bag, then refrigerate and marinate for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the broiler in your oven. (Or preheat your grill!)
  • Remove salmon with kitchen tongs and place directly on the wire rack. Sprinkle with a little bit of salt and pepper, then place directly under the broiler. Cook for 10-12 minutes, depending on the salmon's thickness (our's was just about an inch thick), until opaque and easily flakable with a fork. You can flip the salmon halfway through cooking if desired.
  • Remove and serve immediately, with a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds, green onions and the glaze below.
  • Sesame ginger honey glaze
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Pour over salmon.
