Sesame Salmon Recipe Photo - Diabetic Gourmet Magazine Recipes

Ingredients

    Glaze

  • 3 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. mirin (any sweet white wine may be substituted)
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 3 Tbsp. water

    Salmon

  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 lb. (4, 4-oz.) salmon fillets
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil


Directions

  1. Whisk together soy sauce, mirin, broth, honey, ginger and garlic in saucepan. Set aside. In another bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water. Set aside.

  2. Whisk egg white and cornstarch in small bowl. Liberally brush skinless side of each fillet with egg mixture and sprinkle with seeds evenly, pressing gently to coat.

  3. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Gently place fillets, seed side down, and cook until the seeds are golden brown, about 5 minutes. Very gently turn over and continue cooking through, about 3 minutes.

  4. Over medium heat, simmer soy sauce mixture, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the cornstarch mixture and continue simmering until sauce thickens, about 1 minute.

  5. Spoon glaze over fillets. Serve immediately.
