This is an absolute family favourite. I make this dish often, and they love it. It’s incredibly quick to prepare, which makes it a perfect mid-week dinner option.


Serves: 4


  • 4x 180g salmon fillets, bones removed and skin on
  • 1/4 cup spring onions

For the marinade:

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup tamari
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds, white or black
  • 1 tablespoon honey or 1 teaspoon stevia powder (optional)



  1. Preheat the oven to 200C (180C fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients. Marinate the salmon for up to 30 minutes in a covered bowl or in a large snap-lock bag.
  3. Remove the salmon from the marinade. Reserve the marinade.
  4. Lay the salmon, skin-side down, on the lined tray. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.
  5. Remove from the oven. Pour over the reserved marinade and scatter over the spring onions.
  6. This is good with some bok choy stir-fried in a hot wok or frying pan with tamari, sesame oil and freshly grated ginger.
