Hot Sesame Salmon

When perusing the freezer today I found a bag of Trader Joe's veggie fried rice and some salmon filets: thus, dinner was inspired. I threw some chopped zucchini in with the fried rice because more veggies are always a good idea and it helped to stretch the bag. This was yummy and we will definitely be adding it to the weeknight rotations, so quick and easy!

What you need:

4, 4 oz salmon filets

1 tbsp gochujang

2.5 tbsp honey

2 tsp rice vinegar

1 scallion finely chopped

3 tsp soy sauce

1 tbsp sesame seeds

Sprinkle a little salt over the salmon filets and place in a shallow dish to marinate. Combine all liquid ingredients plus the scallions in a dish and then pour over the salmon. Turn the salmon so that it's flesh side down and marinate for 30 minutes-1 hour. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and place the salmon filets skin side up on the pan. Turn on the broiler and place the pan a few inches below the broiler. Broil for 3 minutes until the skin is super crispy. Remove from the oven and flip the salmon over. Pour any remaining marinade over the top and then sprinkle the sesame seeds evenly across the salmon. Place back in the oven for approx 3 more minutes for medium salmon, still lightly pink in the middle. Serve with fried rice, plain rice, or any side of your choice. Enjoy!
