Make: “Homemade Hoisin Sauce – Better Than Store-Bought.”
Rub a heavy pan suitable for the broiler generously with a neutral oil. (Or, add a sheet of foil in the bottom for easy clean up.)
Top with the salmon, skin side down.
Spread 1T. of hoisin sauce over each piece, smooth the top. (No salt necessary.)
Broil, 4″ from heat source until bubbly and has darkened and caramelized nicely.
Add 1 teaspoon more of hoisin sauce on top of each fillet, smooth – –
Sprinkle sesame seeds on top of each fillet. Return to broiler and broil until the seeds have toasted, and are golden.
Set the oven to 350 degrees.
Remove the salmon, tent with foil, return to the oven to finish cooking the interior.
Time will depend on the thickness of the salmon – and your desired doneness.
5 minutes is the average time.
Place on individual plates, sprinkle with pine nuts and chives. Squeeze some lime juice all over.
Add a serving of Shaved Carrot Slaw.
Easy to double recipe! Or – scale up for a party.
