Over the years, salmon has graced many restaurant menus, has been written up in numerous nutrition articles, and is a staple in hundreds of thousands of recipes.  There are many ways to prepare salmon. A few weeks ago I hosted a Friday night dinner party for friends and featured this winner. I am proud to say that all left very satisfied and I couldn’t help but to share the recipe with you! My side dishes were red quinoa infused with cranberries and slivered almonds, and a nice sautéed mix of diced veggies. See below to discover the recipe for my Succulent Salmon, and I can’t wait to hear your feedback!


Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon fillet

Black sesame seeds

Ginger Teriyaki sauce (I use Nature’s Rancher brand at Whole Foods)


Set oven to 375 degrees F

Lay aluminum foil on baking pan, spray with cooking oil, and place fillet on foil

Drizzle ginger teriyaki sauce and smooth over entire fillet

Shake black sesame seeds all over top of fillet

Slip pan into the oven for 15-17 minutes or until the flesh flakes easily with a fork
