Recipe

I am always looking for new ways to cook salmon since it something I eat pretty often. But since my husband won't eat any seafood at all, it needs to be something that is easily adaptable to one for two servings. Since I am pretty much always down for something spicy and Asian influenced, I couldn't wait to try making my own version of this spicy sesame salmon I had at a restaurant last week. From what I could gather, their version has soy sauce, some type of chili paste, sesame oil, and perhaps some honey. I wanted to keep my low carb so I omitted the honey, but you could definitely add it in to create more of a glaze. Additionally I added some rice wine vinegar, garlic, and ginger to round out the flavors. After a brief dunk in the marinade and quick to the oven, you have a healthy, tasty dinner in about thirty minutes.

    Very good, however the recipe didn't state sriracha sauce or spice, I bought spice and as I was putting it together realized I should of gotten the sauce. I guessed on how much spice to use and I think I put a bit too much as it was very spicey. I will make this again.

    Hey Colleen. Glad to hear you enjoyed it! The Sriracha is the third ingredient in the recipe. I use a lot,- 2 tbsp., since it's in the marinade but you could adjust and use any amount that works for your spice preference.
