Thai Sesame Salmon (Baked or Grilled!)
This beautiful Thai sesame salmon recipe is simple to make and wonderful to serve. And it is equally delicious baked in the oven or grilled (instructions for both methods in recipe). The sesame marinade is what makes this fish dish sing, and it's wonderful spooned over rice too or even potatoes depending what side dish you've chosen - it's even delicious over salad if you want to serve it that way and save a few calories. What I've found too is that the marinade works with other types of fish as well, and the cooking times are the same. Makes a perfect dish for any time of year, and in summer it can be grilled up outdoors for a fresh fish treat. ENJOY!
