Seared Sesame Salmon!

A simple everyday salmon recipe:


  1. A skinned salmon filet;
  2. Tablespoon of sesame seeds (toasted if you like);
  3. Pinch of sweet soft cayenne or other such pepper;
  4. Pinch of salt and a couple of twists of the pepper mill;
  5. 1 tbsp Toasted Sesame oil;
  6. 1 tbsp EVOO;
  7. 1 tsp mild soy sauce;


  1. Mix the seeds and spices together in deep plate;
  2. Whisk the liquids together and completely cover the salmon fillet;
  3. Coat the salmon fillet with the seeds mixture;
  4. Heat a non stick pan over high heat;
  5. Fry the salmon on both sides for no more than 30 sec per side, less if the fillet is thin;
  6. Set the salmon aside to cool before cutting it into ½ cm thick strips;

I serve the salmon on top of a peppery salad leeve, avocado and potato salad tossed in a simple Dijon mustard, lemon juice and EVOO dressing. Eggs and beans are great additions as are croutons.
