This is probably the best and easiest way to make wild salmon. Alot of flavor and simple. The sesame compliments the salmon very well while the sause blends nicely with the ginger and onion. Served best with basmati rice and steamed vegetables.

This is so soft and moist and the sesame with ginger blend is awsome, if you like salmon this is one to try. did the recipe exactly as is and it did not need anything. I did it with garlic mash potato which blended really well with the creamy sauce. A must

Just broil or grill your salmon! This recipe not worth the effort.

For Powellsanmiguel , sounds like you over toasted the sesame seeds. Too bad, the recipe was delicious. My substitute was to use a ginger paste rather then fresh ginger. My second time making this is tonight and I will make extra sauce.
