Here is a beautiful way of doing an amazing piece of fish. This is also great for parties as you can do a larger piece and server it at room temperature. I’ve done this with some good farmed Scottish salmon but in particular I liked the flavor of the fat in this fish which was a wild Alaskan salmon very deep red color to the flesh. It’s a simple preparation…let’s go..

  • Prep Time:
    240 min
  • Cook Time:
    21 min
  • Ready Time:
    4 hour, 21 min


2 servings


  • 2 tablespoons Salmon filet
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sake
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar


Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk together. Now pour the marinade over the salmon filet and let marinade for 4 hours. Remove salmon and place in a pan with some olive oil, a little of the marinade and cover with foil.

In an oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 min or until you see the white fat start to come out of the filet. A trick to test the doneness of the fish is to insert a metal skewer into the middle of the fish from the side. Let it stay there for 5 seconds and then touch the skewer to your wrist or chin and if it’s cold the fish is not cooled, warm its medium and probably a good time to take it out. If it’s really hot then the fish is cooked all the way through and probably a little overcooked. The last 5 min of cooking take the foil off and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top and let finish. Plate it and you can drizzle some of the pan juices on top or on the plate.

That’s it! Simple, delicious and very healthy.
