Sesame Soy Salmon

Sesame Soy Salmon

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I celebrated Rob's 30th birthday by surprising him with dinner at our favorite sushi spot, Sushi Yasaka, and tickets to see Seinfeld. On Saturday I planned a huge surprise party with 40 of his closest friends. It was a non-stop weekend and we spent the majority of the time eating out. Luckily, we stocked up on groceries on Saturday so we can enjoy some home cooked meals this week. I made my homemade bolognese sauce and spaghetti squash last night and this sesame soy salmon is on the menu for later in the week. It's so simple and uses a few ingredients: sesame oil, gluten-free tamari, garlic, ginger and sesame seeds. Salmon is the one protein I never get sick of. I like to keep the flavors simple and pair it with some of my favorite sides, including this sesame roasted bok choy & broccoli and this coconut sticky rice.

Prep Time: 5 minutes    Cook Time: 12-15 minutes

Servings: 4 fillets of salmon

*If you are cooking 1-2 fillets of salmon I recommend cooking 12-14 minutes, for 3-4 fillets I recommend cooking for at least 15 minutes.
