    This is a delicious and flavorful dish. I'm always looking for new and innovative ways to cook salmon. This is a spicy take on the traditional teriyaki salmon, and the plating is beautiful. Given that it is a minor variation of a Bon Appetit recipe, it is also remarkably easy.


    • 6 8oz salmon fillets
    • 4 thinly sliced garlic cloves
    • 5 Tbsp fresh lime juice
    • 3 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
    • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
    • 1 Tbsp honey
    • 1 tsp sesame seeds
    • 2 bunches scallions
    • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
    • 1 thinly sliced Fresno or Jalapeno pepper


    1. Whisk garlic, lime juice, soy, 1 Tbsp vegetable oil, honey and sesame seeds together in a small bowl.
    2. Season the salmon with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper and put in a zip lock back. Pour the marinade from the bowl into the bag, squeeze out air, zip, and squeeze to coat the salmon with the marinade. Let sit for 30 minutes.
    3. Preheat broiler. Toss scallions with 1 Tbsp vegetable oil on a broiling pan and broil about 4 minutes until lightly charred. Remove salmon from marinade and place on top of the charred scallions, pouring over about 2/3 of the remaining marinade in the bag.
    4. Broil until the salmon is charred around the edges, about 7 minutes (watch closely). Add the sliced pepper and spoon over the remaining marinade and broil until the salmon is medium rare in its thickest parts, about 2-3 more minutes.
    5. Remove from broiler, sprinkle with a few additional sesame seeds, and serve.

      This was a tasty new asian salmon recipe. I loved the grilled chives with it and the sauce was fantastic. Would probably work equally well on the grill during the summer.

          I love salmon. I must admit i have tasted the best salmon (so far) in a resto at the city of melbourne. Trying to recreate since... I would try this recipe. Thanks for sharing.
