Sesame Teriyaki Salmon

I am  glad that my kids  eat fish.  My husband is very picky when it comes to fish menus.  Daughter is like me, she would pick  fish over meat.  Son on the other hand says "Ewww" for everything except  sweets but I make him try  anyways lol.
Here's the recipe for you to try.

  • 1 lb salmon fillets, thawed
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves minced fresh garlic
  • 118 tsp. cayenne
  • 1/3 cup rice wine or chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds (white of black)

  • Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger,  garlic, cayenne, and rice wine/broth in a small sauce pan.  Bring to  boil and simmer until reduced and thickened.
  • Spread glaze on the flesh side of the salmon and allow to marinate for about 15 minutes.
  • Place Sesame seeds in a bowl or plate and coat the fillets, pressing lightly to ensure they stick.

  • Heat a small amount of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Beginning with the skin side up, cook the salmon until firm to touch, about 3-4 minutes on each side depending on thickness of fillet.

The photos doesn't really  do the justice but I can assure you, it was delicious.  

My husband even said "I don't even have to use ketchup  to eat it".  He uses ketchup when eating fish to  counter  balance the fish taste hehehe.  Thanks goodness, my  experiment was a success!

I cannot imagine dating on line but one of my very good friends met a Chinese girl on line. They are now very happily married so it does work for some people. Diane
