Salmon Filet, Oriental Style
2 pounds wild salmon filet
4 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons naturally fermented soy sauce
2 tablespoons fish sauce (optional)
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 bunch finely chopped green onions
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons fresh chives
grated rind of 1 lemon
Place salmon filet skin side down in an oiled Pyrex baking dish. Combine all other ingredients, pour over the fish. Cover pan with foil (without letting foil touch the fish) and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until fish is barely cooked through.
Slice the salmon into servings, transfer to individual plates and spoon extra sauce over each slice. Serve with buckwheat or brown rice pasta or basic brown rice.
