Ginger Sesame Salmon


This recipe is for those who want a special something in the usual roasted salmon and love a sweetness to their meal. Even though it seems like a complicated recipe with so many ingredients, I assure you, it´s really simple. It only takes three steps to bake the delicious salmon!

The combination in taste of spicy fresh ginger, salty soy sauce but at the same time sweetness of the honey is like you are taken on an adventure journey.  The first time I made this for my loved one the feed back I received was: “I feel like I´m eating at a fancy restaurant”. That make me chuckle. After the meal he asked for more and was sad, there was none left. So be sure to make enough for seconds.
