Sesame Crusted Salmon Teriyaki

Sesame Crusted Salmon Teriyaki

Serves: 2
Time: 10 minutes (plus any marinating time)

Ingredients: 
500g salmon fillet, skin removed
1 tbsp sriracha
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
5 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp grated ginger
Good grind of black pepper
A side plate covered in a single layer of sesame seeds

Method:

    • Cut your salmon fillets in half so you have 6 even sized chunks of salmon (with 500g I usually get 3 fillets)
    • Mix together your marinade ingredients and place your salmon fillets in, leave them to marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes.
    • Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
    • Put an oven proof frying pan onto a medium heat on your hob and add a little oil of your choice (or spray oil)
    • Take your marinated fillets one at a time. dip one side of each fillet into the sesame seeds and then put it sesame seed side down into your pan once it’s pre-heated, repeat this until all your salmon fillets are in your frying pan
    • Cover the pan and let the fillets cook for around 4 minutes on one side
    • Turn them over to have the sesame side up and place into the oven to finish cooking for another 5 minutes or to your liking
    • Allow the fish to rest for a minute or so before serving with whatever oriental sides you fancy!

P.S
I often make a quick teriyaki sauce to dress these using 1 tbsp sriracha sauce, 2 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar mixed together
A double batch of marinade works well if you prefer to buy a whole side of salmon to have it ready in the freezer to quickly have this on a weeknight too.

    It sounds like delicious flavours! I always think sesame seeds on salmon go so well although it’s a long time since I’ve done it. Time to make it again I think!

      It’s super delicious! I’m not normally keen on sesame crusted anything but I’ve been making this one weekly and it’s delicious every time 🙂
