This is a easy recipe but looks and tastes good enough to serve to company. My family loved this and it is their favorite salmon recipe now. I loved the sesame seeds they get very toasted and tasty and add a satisfying crunch. I highly recommend this one
This was a lovely dish - simple yet very tasty - and elegant. I love salmon (have posted my own fav salmon recipe on this site) and this was a close competitor. Thanks Ma Duck - it's a keeper in my book.
I love this. Deceptively simple. I have made this several times as a single serving. Thank you so much for sharing!
