2 salmon fillets
salt and ground black pepper
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1 lemon, juiced
¼ sesame seeds, for garnish, optional
Season salmons with salt and black pepper. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together cilantro, scallions, olive oil, soy sauce, mustard and honey. Coat a large skillet with olive oil and place over medium heat. When hot, add the fillets to the pan, skin side down. Glaze salmon with the honey sauce. Cook for 5 minutes until the skin is nice and brown. Turn the fish over and cook for 3 minutes on the other side. Sprinkle sesame seeds and lemon over top. Serve with preferred vegetables as a side.
Note: Salmon fillet is great but when it comes to flavor, bone in one is always the best.
