This salmon is tender and moist with a crispy outer coating. It is seasoned just right with toasted sesame oil, a hint of ginger and savory seasonings. I like to garnish each fillet with sesame seeds toasted in pan drippings, but you may choose to omit per your preference.
- 4 salmon fillets
- 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ginger, ground
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted (optional for garnish)
- Drizzle sesame oil over salmon and rub over all sides of fish. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, combine ground ginger, garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper. Season all sides of fish and allow to dry marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
- Place a large skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. Once the oil is fragrant and glistening, sear one side for 5-7 minutes. Carefully turn and sear the opposite side for another 5-7 minutes. Once salmon is cooked through, remove to serving plate and cover.
- Lower skillet heat to medium-low and toast sesame seeds for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant and thoroughly coated with the oils and seasonings remaining in the pan.
- Spread seeds evenly over the top of each filet.
- Serve and enjoy!
