A sweet, tangy and salty mixture of soy sauce, rice vinegar and honey does double-duty as marinade and sauce. Toasted sesame seeds provide a nutty and attractive accent. Make it a meal: Serve with brown rice and sautéed red peppers and zucchini slices.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 pound center-cut salmon fillet, skinned (see Tip) and cut into 4 portions

  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds, (see Tip)

Directions

  2. Whisk scallion, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and ginger in a medium bowl until the honey is dissolved. Place salmon in a sealable plastic bag, add 3 tablespoons of the sauce and refrigerate; let marinate for 15 minutes. Reserve the remaining sauce.

  3. Preheat broiler. Line a small baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.

this was very tasty replaced the scallion with crushed onion from the spice isle

although looking at it the recipe i followed use a lot more soy sauce but it was basically the same thing i omitted the garnish as i didn't have it and only used as much honey as came off the tablespoon easily

very tasty though i believe it called for 1/2 cup of soy sauce where i was looking so if you don't have a salt issue you can use that i found that made the marinade cover my relatively thick cuts of salmon better as well as having to double layer them due to a small bag
