Always a hit in my family, there is never a protest from anyone when I make salmon this way. I like using ponzu sauce (think citrus flavored soy sauce) but you can easily use soy sauce instead.
- 4 salmon fillets
- 1/4 cup ponzu sauce OR soy sauce
- 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 tsp mustard (I like whole grain)
- 2 tsp olive oil
- Ground pepper
- Cilantro leaves, for garnish
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- In a small saucepan, combine the ponzu/soy sauce and ginger garlic and bring to a simmer.
- Remove from heat and stir in the honey and mustard and set the glaze aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a large, ovenproof skillet.
- Season the salmon with pepper and add it to the skillet, skinned side up.
- Cook over high heat till the skin is crispy, approx 4 minutes. If you are using skinned fillets, cook for about 2-3 minutes.
- Turn the salmon over and spoon the glaze on top.
- Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake the salmon for about 5 minutes or until cooked through.
- Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fish onto plates and garnish with the cilantro before serving.
