Whole30 simple sesame salmon
1 salmon filet
Toasted sesame oil
2 pieces of fresh ginger (about the size of a blueberry each)
Optional: 1 Tsp Whole30 approved hot sauce (I used Trader Joes Jalapeño hot sauce)
Using a ziploc or reusable silicone bag, add salmon and all ingredients. Give it a good mix and allow to marinate in the fridge overnight.
When you’re ready to cook, preheat your oven to 450 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil.
Give it a light spray with avocado oil to avoid the skin sticking and then place the salmon, skin side down, on the baking sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes for individual filets and 10-15 for a larger filet (depending on its size). I cooked this 10 oz piece for 10 minutes and it was perfect!
Remove from oven, allow to cook slightly, then remove from pan and serve immediately. This also works great the next day on a salad for lunch!
All of these ingredients are per serving of salmon - 6 to 8 oz - and I used a larger filet that was 2 servings
