Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Tamari soy sauce
  • 1/8 cup honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 pieces about 7 oz. each salmon fillets
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons sesame seeds

Directions

  1. In a small sauce pan, mix soy sauce, honey, and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until glaze is reduced by about a third, 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  3. Set aside 1-1/2 tablespoons of the glaze to top the finished salmon. 

  4. Pour remainder into a shallow 2-quart baking dish. Place salmon pieces in dish and let stand 15 minutes. If the salmon has skin on one side, put the flesh side down first to marinate then turn pieces over just prior to cooking.

  5. Place on middle shelf in oven and bake for 15 – 20 minutes. Remove from oven.
  6. Turn oven to broil. Baste salmon with sauce from the baking dish then sprinkle with sesame seeds. Broil for 2-3 minutes, about 6? from heat, just until sesame seeds are toasted.
  7. To serve, place salmon on serving plates and drizzle reserved glaze around plate or on top of salmon.
