Sesame Soy Salmon - Two Cooking Methods
October 26, 2014
"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."

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.
Heat oils in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute salmon 2-4 minutes, depending upon thickness. (I usually buy thin fillets.)
Turn fillets over, and brush with remaining soy mixture. Cook 2-4 minutes or until done.
Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and chives before serving.
