A light and healthy lunch or dinner recipe for Japanese-inspired Salmon with a tamari marinade
4 180g salmon fillets, bones removed and skin on
¼ cup spring onions
1 tablespoon sesame oil
½ cup tamari
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
¼ cup sesame seeds, white or black
1 tablespoon honey or 1 teaspoon stevia powder (optional)
Preheat the oven to 200C (180C fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients. Marinate the salmon for up to 30 minutes in a covered bowl or in a large snap-lock bag.
Remove the salmon from the marinade. Reserve the marinade.
Lay the salmon, skin-side down, on the lined tray. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.
Remove from the oven. Pour over the reserved marinade and scatter over the spring onions.
This is good with some bok choy stir-fried in a hot wok or frying pan with tamari, sesame oil and freshly grated ginger.
