Soy-Sesame Salmon

This dish is incredibly flavorful and unbelievably simple. Soy sauce and orange juice permeate the fish, while toasted-sesame oil gives it a nutty accent. Boiling the marinade turns it into a thick glaze.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey or sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted-sesame oil
  • 1 piece (1 inch) peeled fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 4 skin-on salmon fillets (4 ounces each)

Directions

  1. Preheat broiler. Whisk together soy sauce, honey, orange juice, toasted-sesame oil, and ginger in a medium glass baking dish. Add salmon fillets, skin side up. Let stand for 15 minutes to marinate.

  2. Transfer salmon to a rimmed baking sheet, flesh side up; reserve marinade. Broil salmon until flesh is slightly firm to the touch, 5 to 6 minutes. Meanwhile, bring marinade to a boil in a small saucepan. Cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Drizzle glaze over salmon.
