Super Seed Recipe: Sesame Crusted Salmon

Super Seed Recipe: Sesame Crusted Salmon

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp dry sherry
  • 1 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 2/3 tbsp cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 lbs center-cut salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, sherry, chicken broth, sugar, ginger and garlic. In another small bowl, stir together the 2 teaspoons cornstarch and the water.

Whisk together the egg white and the 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Brush the skinless side of the salmon with the egg white mixture and then dip it into the sesame seeds to coat.

In a large nonstick frying pan, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Put the salmon in the pan, sesame seed side down, and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Turn and cook until just done, about 3 minutes longer for a 1-inch-thick fillet. Remove.

Pour any oil from the pan. Add the soy sauce mixture. Simmer for 2 minutes, stirring. Whisk in the cornstarch-and-water mixture and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute longer. Serve the salmon with the sauce poured around it.
