There is no exception to me as we eat salmon at least a few times a month, if not more. Little G loves salmon, so that makes it a staple on our dining table.
It’s so easy to make salmon and roasting/baking is one of the easiest wasy. All you need is a simple marinade of a few ingredients and the oven would do the rest.
When it comes to the marinade, less is more with salmon, such as this beautiful and gorgeously prepared Sesame Salmon.
As the name suggests, this Sesame Salmon recipe is pretty much crusted with toasted sesame seeds. The marinade also calls for the aromatic sesame oil, which lends its nutty nuance to the fish.
A little bit of soy sauce, Thai sweet chili sauce, honey and apple cider vinegar balance the flavors of the marinade. The end result is moist, juicy, clean tasting, and absolutely mouthwatering salmon that goes well with just about anything.
This is a perfect dish for spring, with your favorite roasted spring vegetables. It’s healthy and delicious!

This was delicious and easy to prepare! I cut back on the honey (personal preference) and had to add more sesame seeds to cover the fish as in the photos, but the end result was moist and flavorful. The sesame seeds made a nice texture on the top of the fish. Thanks!
Really super but I need more vegetarian dish ( I am from India then only )
