    Honey-Soy Broiled Salmon

    WebMD Recipe from

    Honey-Soy Broiled Salmon

    A sweet, tangy and salty mixture of soy sauce, rice vinegar and honey does double-duty as marinade and sauce. Toasted sesame seeds provide a nutty and attractive accent. Make it a meal: Serve with brown rice and sautéed red peppers and zucchini slices.

    This Recipe Is:
    Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 20 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
    • 1  
      scallion, minced
    • 2   tablespoons
      reduced-sodium soy sauce
    • 1   tablespoon
      rice vinegar
    • 1   tablespoon
    • 1   teaspoon
      minced fresh ginger
    • 1   pound
      center-cut salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 4 portions
    • 1   teaspoon
      toasted sesame seeds
    1. 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 tablespoons of the sauce and refrigerate; let marinate for 15 minutes. Reserve the remaining sauce.
    2. Preheat broiler. Line a small baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.
    3. Transfer the salmon to the pan, skinned-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.
