Ready In

"From Coastal Living, September 2007; modified recipe by Julia Rutland. NOTE: If you don't want to prepare salmon on top of the stove, it can also be roasted skin side down, without turning, in a glass baking dish sprayed with cooking spray, at 400F for 8-12 minutes, depending upon thickness of fillets. Baste with remainder of soy sauce mixture after roasting about 5 minutes. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and chives before serving."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Combine brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger root, and rice wine vinegar. Brush half of soy mixture over salmon, and let sit 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 2

Heat oils in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute salmon 2-4 minutes, depending upon thickness. (I usually buy thin fillets.)

Step 3

Turn fillets over, and brush with remaining soy mixture. Cook 2-4 minutes or until done.

Step 4

Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and chives before serving.

Step 5

Note oven roasting cooking method described above in the recipe description section!

I used the oven method and this was really moist and tasty. The marinade would be good for chicken breast too. Will be making this again.

Very good salmon. I used the stove top version and we enjoyed the salmon very much. Made as directed but I forgot the sesame seeds and chives. Thanks for sharing!

I made this recipe using the stove-top option and it turned out delicious. I am always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes that uses items I usually have on hand and this was one of them. The only change I made was subbing dried Parsley to garnish because I had no chives or green onions.
