2 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon minced or pureed ginger root
Pinch dried chili flakes
2-3 skinless wild salmon fillets
2-3 tablespoons white sesame seeds
Original recipe makes 2 Servings
Ready in less than 30 minutes
1. In a zip-top bag, combine the garlic, soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, and chili flakes. Place the salmon fillets in the bag and let them marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.
2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
3. Pour the sesame seeds onto a plate and shake the plate slightly so that they scatter into a single layer. Lay the salmon fillets face-down in sesame seeds to coat the top.
4. Place the crusted salmon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet. If you like, you can switch the oven to broil for the final minute of cooking to lightly toast the sesame seeds.
