Sesame Baked Salmon

Simple Salmon in 20 minutes!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Tahini
  • 1 1/2 Soy Sauce (reduced sodium)
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Zest (*substitute with orange zest for sweeter version)
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice (*substitute with organic juice for sweeter version)
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger (grated)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Coriander (grounded)
  • (4) 6-ounce Salmon Fillets (skinless, patted dry)
  • 2 tablespoons Sesame Seeds (toasted)

Directions

Preheat oven to 325°F.

In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, soy sauce, lemon (or orange) zest and juice, ginger, and coriander. 

Arrange the salmon fillets on a rimmed baking pan. Spoon the tahini sauce over the fish, sprinkle with the sesame seeds, and bake until the salmon flakes easily with a fork and is just opaque (about 8 – 12 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets). Sprinkle with scallions.
