Tired of the same old salmon prepared the same old way? Wanna mix it up?

Today’s dish is sesame salmon, and boy is it a twist. Salmon alone is the ultimate nutrition stat-stuffer: it’s loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and vitamin B12.

The difference with this recipe is that it’s made with a savory sesame marinade. The marinade explodes with flavor, adding that signature “bite” to this fish dish.

Alright, let’s make this salmon happen!


  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1/4 of a cup of lemon juice
  • 1/4 of a cup of coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon of ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1/4 of a teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 4 (6 oz) salmon steaks 


In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first six ingredients. Mix them well.

Set aside 1/2 of a cup of marinade and refrigerate.

Add the salmon to the remaining marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, turning once. Drain and discard the marinade.

Place the salmon on a broiler pan. Broil 3-4 inches from the heat, for 5 minutes. Brush the salmon with the reserved marinade, then turn and broil for 5 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Brush the salmon with the remaining marinade.
