For the sauce
- 4 tablespoons sriracha
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce (or gluten free alternative)
- 1-2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- Pinch garlic powder (or grated fresh)
- Pinch ginger powder (or grated fresh)
To cook the salmon
- 2-3 tablespoons high heat neutral oil (such as avocado or grapeseed)
- 2 salmon fillets
- Kosher salt
- Red pepper flakes
- Toasted sesame seeds
- Freshly cut cilantro
- Lime wedges
- In a small bowl, mix all the sauce ingredients and set aside.
- Pat the salmon dry and sprinkle with kosher salt.
- Preheat a skillet (something that can go in the oven) over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the oil and let heat another 60 seconds. Also, preheat your broiler.
- Add the salmon skin-side down, and cook 3-4 minutes over medium heat.
- Pour over the sauce directly on top, add sesame seeds and red pepper flakes, then pop under the broiler 4-6 minutes, or until you reach your desired doneness. It's normal if some of the excess sauce burns a bit. The actual part on the salmon should not. A good indicator of doneness is a bit of white coming out of the thickest part.
- Serve with lime and cilantro.
