Shopping List
    Salmon
  • 1 pound salmon
  • 2 tablespoons high-heat cooking oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste Ginger Soy Sauce
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons neutral-flavored oil (such as grapeseed or avocado oil)
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium tamari
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 8 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 heaping tablespoons ginger, chopped
  • 2 scallions, chopped (optional, white and light green parts only) Topping (Optional)
  • furikake seasoning, chili flakes, scallions, and/or toasted sesame seeds

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Preheat the oven to 450°F. For a stovetop method, see Note 1 below.
  2. Step 2: Rinse and pat the salmon dry. Place, skin-side down, on a baking sheet. Rub the salmon all over with the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast the salmon for 10 to 12 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork. For a shorter piece of salmon (one inch or less), roast for only circa 8 minutes.
  3. Step 3: Meanwhile, make the sauce. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the garlic, ginger, and scallion. Cook for 1 minute, stirring often. Add the remaining water, tamari, and sugar to the pan. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced slightly and smells quite fragrant. Set aside.
  4. Step 4: Remove the cooked salmon from the oven and transfer to a plate. Top the hot salmon with half of the sauce. Add any optional toppings.
  5. Serve: Enjoy the salmon with your favorite sides and drizzle with the extra sauce.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Looking for a stovetop method? Place the oiled salmon, skin side down, in a skillet over medium-high heat. Let sear for one minute, then cover with a lid. Let the salmon filets cook undisturbed for 6 to 8 minutes, depending on the thickness. The skin will be very crispy.
