Honey-Soy Broiled Salmon

YIELD: 4 servings


  • 1 scallion, minced

  • 2 tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar

  • 1 tbsp. honey

  • 1 tsp. minced fresh ginger

  • 1 lb. center-cut salmon fillet

  • 1 tsp. sesame seeds, toasted


Whisk scallion, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and ginger in a medium bowl until the honey is dissolved.

Place salmon in a sealable plastic bag, add 3 tbsp. of the sauce and refrigerate; let marinate for 15 minutes.

Reserve the remaining sauce.

Preheat broiler.

Line a small baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.

Transfer the salmon to the pan, skin-side down. (Discard the marinade.)

Broil the salmon 4 to 6 inches from the heat source until cooked through, 6 to 10 minutes.

Drizzle with the reserved sauce and garnish with sesame seeds.
