Author's Notes

Makes 2-4 portions.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
In a mixing bowl, prepare the Lemon Sesame Sauce by combining the zest and juice from Lemon (1), Shallots (2), Sesame Seeds (1 Tbsp), Soy Sauce (1 Tbsp), Honey (1/2 Tbsp), Toasted Sesame Oil (1 tsp), and Fresh Ginger (1/2 Tbsp). Stir well to combine all the ingredients and set aside.
step 2
Brush the Salmon Fillets (4) with Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) on both sides and season with Salt (to taste).
step 3
Place a non-stick pan on medium heat and place the salmon filets skin-side down, cook the salmon 80% of the way through skin-side down. This will take about 8 minutes.
step 4
Then, flip the salmon and add Water (3 Tbsp), immediately close with a tight lid and remove from the heat. This will allow the salmon to steam and cook gently all the way through. This should take about 3 minutes.
step 5
Once the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily, remove it from the pan and transfer it to a serving plate.
step 6
Pour the Lemon Sesame Sauce over the seared salmon filet, allowing it to coat the fish evenly.
step 7
Garnish with torn Fresh Cilantro Leaf (1/2 cup) for added freshness and flavor. Serve the salmon with Lemon Sesame Sauce immediately, and enjoy it with your favorite side dishes.
