Sesame Soy Salmon

This sesame soy salmon is so simple and uses few ingredients: sesame oil, gluten-free tamari, garlic, ginger, and sesame seeds. Salmon is the one protein I never get sick of. I like to keep the flavors simple and pair it with some of my favorite sides, including this sesame roasted bok choy & broccoli and this coconut sticky rice.


  • 4 fillets of salmon
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce or gluten-free tamari
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1/4 tsp sesame seeds
  • Optional: a sprinkle of nori on each fillet


Step 1

Preheat oven to 375F. While the oven is pre-heating, marinate salmon in gluten-free tamari or soy sauce for 20 minutes. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and drizzle with sesame oil. Place salmon on the baking sheet and top with grated ginger, garlic, sesame seeds and nori. Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Cook Notes

*If you are cooking 1-2 fillets of salmon I recommend cooking 12-14 minutes, for 3-4 fillets I recommend cooking for at least 15 minutes.
