Years ago, my friend Suzy had us over for dinner and served a salmon that my family loved. My kids went absolutely bonkers for it and begged me to get the recipe. Suzy generously shared it, and my kids have called it “Suzy’s Salmon” ever since. This dinner is always a hit with my family. It’s so good that I make extra salmon to have on hand for lunches the next day. It’s truly one of our favorite dinners.
My version is simpler than what we ate that night. This salmon is quick enough for a weeknight meal, and delicious enough for company. We serve this with rice and either broccoli or asparagus. Oh, and don’t skip the sauce. It makes the recipe.
- 4 wild caught salmon fillets, skin removed (6 ounces each)
- 1½ cup Roasted Sesame Seeds (more if needed)
- ½ cup Maple Syrup
- ½ cup Soy Sauce
- Green Onion thinly sliced for garnish
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Place roasted sesame seeds on plate. Coat all sides of fillets with sesame seeds. Place prepped fish in baking dish. Bake 20-25 minutes until fish is cooked through.
- For sauce, combine maple syrup and soy sauce in small sauce pan. Bring to a boil and lower heat to low simmer. Simmer until sauce reduced by half.
- To serve, place salmon fillet over rice. drizzle sauce over fish and garnish with green onion.
