My Sesame coated Salmon Fillets.

Updated: Sep 30, 2021

Salmon fillets marinated in soy sauce and mirin, coated in sesame seeds served with fried courgettes and pepper by kurumicooks delicious healtyh easy to make Japanese Asian and Fusion cooking for your kitchen

This week's recipe features fillets of salmon marinated in soy sauce & mirin then wrapped in a sesame coating.

This is a combination that provides a double dose of goodness - the salmon gives you omega-3 fatty acids, protein, b vitamins, selenium and potassium while the sesame coating provides extra protein and fibre along with a whole smorgasbord of minerals - copper, calcium, manganese, magnesium, iron & zinc.

What's more this is yummy to eat and ready in only a few minutes. I ate this along with some lightly fried courgette and red pepper but it would work equally well with a host of other vegetables. This is quite easy to prepare - my one tip would be to keep an eye on the heat when you fry the salmon - you don't want the sesame to burn while you're cooking.

If this is the kind of cooking that gets your juices flowing, you can find the written recipe just below and the Youtube tutorial by clicking Sesame coated Salmon Fillets or scroll to the bottom of the page.

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX.
