The salmon was so easy, moist, and delicious, and the fact that my son ate it all up makes it a definite addition to our my favorite recipes!

Ingredients

  • For the Sauce
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup orange juice, preferably fresh squeezed
  • 2-4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chili paste, such as sambal oelek, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • For the Fish
  • 4 ~200g salmon fillets, skin removed
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ⅓ cup sesame seeds

Directions

  • 1Preheat the oven to 180 C.
  • 2Make the sauce: In a large bowl, stir together the ketchup, orange juice, sugar, chili paste and sesame oil. Set aside.
  • 3Make the fish: Season the salmon generously with salt and pepper, then drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Place the seeds on a plate and dredge the tops of the fillets in the sesame seeds to coat.
  • 4In an ovenproof skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the salmon, sesame seed side down, to the pan and sear, turning once, until golden brown about 3 minutes on each side.
