Roasted Sesame Salmon Wasabi Dip

Socks on, socks off. Socks on, socks off. Sensei Lisa said this Asian-stimulated Sesame Roasted Salmon might knock my socks off and immediately into the subsequent week. The sage grasp wasn’t incorrect. Marinated in a soy-citrus combination and crowned with nutty-flavored sesame seeds, the salmon is roasted to golden-crusted soft perfection. She wowed me even extra with the addition of her highly spiced wasabi dip, but, can she, like Julie-san, karate chop the cap off a beer bottle even as blindfolded and standing on one foot? I think now not.

Citrus Soy Marinade

2 tbsp orange juice
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
½ tsp lime zest

4 (6oz) salmon fillets, skin removed
¼ tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1½ tbsp sesame seeds

Wasabi Dip

¼ cup mayonnaise
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp wasabi paste
1 tsp fresh lime juice


1) For the marinade, in a small bowl, whisk orange juice, honey, soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, ginger and lime zest. Place the salmon in a large resealable plastic bag. Add marinade, turn to coat and refrigerate 1 hour.

2) Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with non-stick cooking spray. Remove salmon from marinade and discard marinade. Place salmon on baking sheet and season each fillet with salt and pepper. Sprinkle tops evenly with sesame seeds, pressing lightly to adhere. Bake 10 minutes or until fish is flaky.

3) For the wasabi dip, in a small bowl, whisk mayonnaise, soy sauce, wasabi, and lime juice until combined. Serve with salmon.
