Sesame Salmon with Green Onions

Sesame Salmon

It has been a while, since we had fresh salmon for dinner. Medical experts recommend eating fish with their heart-healthy omega-3s twice a week. So last night, I made my family’s favorite fish dish, “Sesame Salmon with Green Onions.” It is a very simple recipe to make with a short cooking time! Using toasty sesame seeds, salty soy sauce and savory green onions, this delicious and healthy dish can become one of your family favorites too!

Sesame Salmon with Green Onions

Ingredients for Marinade:

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon organic sunflower oil
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce

Ingredients for Salmon:

  • 1 pound salmon fillet, sliced into 4 portions
  • 1 tablespoon organic sunflower oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seed oil
  • 1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced on the diagonal


  1. In a shallow dish, whisk together the lemon juice, oil and soy sauce. Add salmon and marinade for 30 minutes.
  2. Using a small bowl, whisk together the oils, soy sauce and sesame seeds. Set aside.
  3. Turn on the broiler. Using a foil-lined broiling pan, add the salmon, skin side up. Place in the broiler, using the rack approximately 6-inches from the heating element, for about 4 minutes, until skin turns golden brown.
  4. Take the salmon out of the oven. Turn the fish over, skin side down. Sprinkle each piece with salt and pepper. Add soy sauce-sesame seed mixture to the fish. Cook for another 4 minutes, until golden brown. Cooking time will vary according to salmon thickness.
  5. Sprinkle with green onions and serve. 4 servings.
