Recipe #8: there is nothing like a delicious, juicy fillet of salmon cooked just right.  Loaded with healthy fats, its super satisfying and filling, while somehow managed to feel light.  Its not a heavy food.  And of course as everyone knows, its so good for you.  I love this particular melding of flavors.  Be warned though, once you try this one, you might not be able to stop thinking about it until long after you’ve eaten it.

This dish is gluten-free, lactose-free and can be tailored so that its sugar-free as well (though the sugar in this one is minimal).

Sesame Brown Sugar Honey Glazed Salmon

Purchase 2-4 fillets of salmon for this recipe

Sauce to marinate salmon

¼ cup of olive oil

2 tablespoons of soy sauce

1 garlic clove, minced

½ teaspoon of ginger

2 tablespoons of brown sugar (or, one could sub in coconut sugar)

1-2 tablespoons of sesame seeds

 

Glaze for salmon

¼ cup of honey

1 teaspoon of soy sauce

½ teaspoon of ginger

1 teaspoon of sesame seeds

  1. Line baking sheet with foil. Spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix together the ingredients for the sauce to marinate the salmon in a large Ziploc bag. Put the fillets of salmon into the bag along with the mixture.  Marinate the salmon in the bag/mixture for 30 minutes at room temperature.
  3. While allowing the salmon to marinate, use this time to mix together in a separate bowl the ingredients for the glaze.
  4. Remove the salmon from the marinade mixture. Place the salmon on the foil-lined baking sheet.  Cook on 250 C on the top shelf of the oven for 12 minutes.
  5. Remove the salmon from the oven. Once plated, top with a spoonful or two of the glaze mixture.
  6. Enjoy! This dish is great with sides of roasted vegetables, rice, marinated mushrooms, whatever you can think up!
