Toasted Sesame Ginger Salmon with Honey Glaze

I am so lucky that all of my kids LOVE fish.  I try to make some variety of fish at least once a week.  I have a few very good salmon recipes that we love, Grilled Salmon, for example.  This recipe requires a little bit more work than that one {still very easy though} but it is worth the extra time.  I do believe that it may now be my favorite.

Toasted Sesame Ginger Salmon

1 1/2 pounds raw salmon, {I made 6 salmon fillets}
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, recipe below

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack over top. Spray the rack with nonstick spray. {I just used a baking dish for mine}.

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 ziplock bag, then refrigerate and marinate for 30 minutes {or longer}.

Preheat the broiler in your oven. (Or preheat your grill, etc if you prefer to use something else.) {I baked mine at 400 for 20 minutes because I had foccacia going in the oven too}

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.
