Sesame Lime Salmon

sesame broiled salmon

You may have noticed from my weekly blogs and cookbooks that I'm not a huge seafood fan. However...I love me some broiled or grilled salmon. This recipe is super-easy, and uber-tasty. And that soy sesame butter is dynamite, melted over the hot broiled salmon. You're welcome.

Marinate the salmon: In a small shallow baking dish, stir together a few tablespoons of fresh lime juice, a tablespoon of melted coconut oil, and a tablespoon of soy sauce. Add 4 pieces of salmon, cover, and let marinade for 1 to 2 hours.

While marinating, make the soy sesame butter: in a mixing bowl, mix together a softened stick of butter, 2 tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds, a handful of sliced scallions, and 2 teaspoons each of soy sauce and sesame oil. Form into a log, wrap in plastic wrap, and throw into the fridge.

When ready to cook, line a baking sheet with foil. Add the salmon steaks, skin down. Broil for 10 minutes, until sizzling and golden brown. Seve on a platter, with a small slice of the soy sesame butter on each piece of salmon. Sprinkle the top with sliced scallions.
