One sweet, tangy and salty mixture does double-duty as marinade and sauce. Toasted sesame seeds provide a nutty and attractive accent. Make it a Meal: Serve with brown rice and sauteed red peppers and zucchini slices.


  • 1 scallion, minced
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 pound center-cut salmon fillet, skinned (see tip) and cut into 4 portions
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds


Whisk the scallion, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and ginger in a medium bowl until the honey is dissolved. Place the salmon in a sealable plastic bag, add 3 tablespoons of the sauce and refrigerate; let marinate for 15 minutes. Reserve the remaining sauce.

Preheat the broiler. Line a small baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Transfer the salmon to the pan, skinned-side down. (Discard the marinade). Broil the salmon 4-6 inches from the heat source until cooked through, 6-10 minutes. Drizzle with the reserved sauce and garnish with sesame seeds.
