A really great preparation (and easy) of salmon leaving the fish sweet, tangy, and succulent. Homerun dinner!
Maple sesame salmon fillets (thank you to And Then I Do the Dishes blog)
salmon fillets (enough for 4 people)
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce of your choice (I used Frank’s)
toasted sesame seeds, for garnish
Mix all the ingredients except the salmon and the sesame seeds. Use either a bowl or a zip-lock bag. Place salmon in the marinade and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Preheat broiler and place the oven rack in the middle of your oven. Place the salmon fillets on the baking sheet and broil for about 12 minutes. You can baste the salmon once or twice during the broiling.
When done (flesh is pink), remove and plate. Garnish with sesame seeds, and serve with your favorite sides. Makes 4 servings.
