Cooking Time25 minutes
2 pre-cut Oshēn Salmon fillets

1 Tbsp. Sesame oil
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1 tsp. ginger, minced
¼ cup honey
½ tsp. sesame seeds

Turn off the oven: This salmon recipe calls for some major pan-frying action. Hey, don’t worry if you don’t have a barbecue at home to pop a fillet of salmon on. You can easily recreate the same smoky flavor with a cast iron pan on your stove.
Add a pinch of sesame seeds, a healthy serving of this Asian-style marinade, and heat your skillet to medium-high. Let the fillet sizzle for about four minutes on each side, depending on the desired doneness. When it’s done, you’ll want to pair your protein with a warm cup of brown rice or quinoa and a selection of freshly cooked veggies like broccoli or asparagus.
Low-Carb Asian-Style Pan-Fried Salmon
In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, rice vinegar, and honey. Once mixed, place pre-cut salmon fillets into the bowl and coat evenly.
Make sure salmon is seasoned on both sides. Then, place salmon in the pan to sear with a pinch of olive oil on medium heat for four minutes for each side. Set aside.
Remove salmon from pan and garnish with sesame seeds. Pair with fresh vegetables and one cup of rice, if desired.
