Sometimes you just want the saltiness and full bodies of oriental flavouring. This dish does all that but without the addition of soy sauce.
Ingredients
  • 4 Wild Salmon Fillets (skin on)
  • Marinade:
  • 2 tablespoons organic tamari soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoons xylitol
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 lime juice & zest
  • Honey & Ginger Glaze
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon organic tamari soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • ½ teaspoon sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. Place all marinade ingredients in a blender and whizz to combine
  2. Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish cover with the marinade and leave for at least 20 minutes or overnight
  3. Combine all the glaze ingredients together in a serving bowl
  4. Preheat your oven to 400F/200C
  5. Heat some coconut oil in a shallow frying pan and once hot add the salmon fillets skin side down, fry till the skins are brown and crispy
  6. Transfer to your preheated oven for 5-10 minutes, until the salmon fillets are cooked through.
  7. Serve immediately with a drizzle of the glaze, some lemon garlic broccoli or a pile of salad.
Notes
I use an oven-friendly frying pan so I can transfer the salmon straight from the stove to the oven.
