American, Asian American, Japanese, Mediterranean
4(6 ouncsalmon fillets
1/2cuplow sodium soy sauceregular soy sauce will work, just reduce salt
green onionsfor garnish
sesame seedsfor garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with non stick cooking spray and set aside.
In a small saucepan, whisk together the brown sugar, soy sauce, cider vinegar, garlic, pepper, salt, and sesame oil. In a small bowl, whisk together the water and cornstarch. Slowly whisk into the mixture.
Bring to boil and boil about 1-2 minutes until the mixture just starts to thicken. Remove from heat and reserve 1/4 cup of the sauce for later.
Place the salmon in the pan and pour the sauce on top. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15-17 minutes until the salmon is opaque in the center. I like to remove the aluminum foil the last few minutes of baking to brown the tops. Remove from the oven.
Brush the top of the salmon with the reserved 1/4 cup of the sauce. Garnish with green onion and sesame seeds. Delicious served with rice.
