Broiled Sesame Salmon

Broiled Sesame Salmon

This is another salmon recipe that guarantees a full depth of flavor. I love sesame oil in a lot of things; adding it last minute to stir-fries or in soups, rice, noodles, sizzling hot plates and even tempuras. So I’m not sure why it never occurred to me to try it with salmon and emphasizing the flavor and texture with a smattering of sesame seeds.

Broiled Sesame Salmon

After getting some inspiration from Pinterest, here we have broiled sesame salmon which is marinated beforehand, broiled and glazed.

You can toast sesame seeds by dry-frying them in a pan until they are light golden.
