Asian Salmon

This is a super easy meal that consists of just a few steps.  The brown sugar and orange juice create a divine caramelization that is sure to please.  With the soy, it isn’t overly sweet. This dish is Gluten Free (when prepared with gluten free soy like Tamari), naturally Dairy Free and Nightshade Free


INGREDIENTS
1/4 Cup brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 Cup Tamari soy (GF)
1/2 Cup orange juice
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger (1/2 TBS dry)
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 pounds salmon steaks or fillets
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds

INSTRUCTIONS 

1, Mix ingredients (except onion and sesame seeds) to create the glaze. Place in a small pan over low heat.

2. Scale and score the fish skin.  Salt and pepper liberally

3. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.  When the pan is almost to the smoke point, add vegetable oil.  Put the fish skin side down and cook for 3 minutes or until the skin releases from the pan.  If you try and flip it to early, it will stick.  Trust the fish.  Cook the fish 3/4 of the way (about 5 minutes) on the skin side.  As it is cooking, brush the flesh side with the glaze

4. Flip over and finish 2-3 minutes on the flesh side.
