1/2 Photos of Broiled Sesame Salmon
Christina P.'s Note:
My mom clipped this recipe out of the Chronicle years ago and it's been a family favorite ever since! It's SO easy and quick to make and is SO delicious that even people who think they don't like salmon will LOVE it. Just remember not to over-cook the salmon. It should be dark pink and slightly translucent in the center. I've found if I take it out of the oven when it still looks only half done, it's perfect by the time I serve it.
