A favorite to serve warm or cold. I presented this at a friends party, and no one wanted any other appetizer. It can be an entre also.


  1. If I'm making it for a large party, I use a fillet. If for a dinner main course, I use steaks, but you can use either.
  2. Wash the salmon and pat dry.
  3. Thinly, but not too thinly, baste the salmon with the hoisen sauce then sprinkle heavily with the sesame seed until completely covered as though creating a crust.
  4. If you use steaks do both sides.
  5. Bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes (until the fish is finished).
  6. Place under the broiler for a minute to brown the sesame seeds. If you're using this as an hors d'ouvre, serve on bed of greens with crackers and put a little hoisen sauce on the side.

Very good! This is a quick and easy recipe to make for myself as I am the only one at home who eats salmon. I liked the fact that the hoisin sauce and sesame seeds didn't over power the taste of the salmon. I will making this one again
