Flip salmon, remove skin, and cook 1 minute more.

    I usually just make salmon with lemon pepper or salt and pepper with olive oil, but wanted to know some great ways to prepare salmon using sesame oil. I made this salmon without the ginger (we did not have this at the house) and it still came out so well. I can only wonder how good it will taste next time when we do add the ginger. Very easy to follow instructions and short preparation time!  -  01 Mar 2016  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Delicious! Eyeballed the ingredients. Not exact measurements. Marinated for an hour. Watched the salmon closely on the frying pan as each stove is different. Turned out flavourful, moist and juicy.  -  12 Jun 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Just curious why it’s called grilled sesame chicken and it’s not grilled. Other than that it turned out well in the pan!  -  21 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
