Ingredients

  • 4 (6 ouncsalmon fillets
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce regular soy sauce will work, just reduce salt
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • green onions for garnish
  • sesame seeds for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with non stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
