Sesame Crusted Salmon

Sesame Crusted Salmon - Recipe


  • 1/4 c. soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. dry sherry
  • 1/2 c. chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. fresh ginger
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 1 egg white
  • 4 pieces salmon fillet
  • 1/4 c. sesame seeds – (black & white)
  • 1/4 c. cooking oil


Combine soy sauce, sherry, broth, sugar, ginger, and garlic. In another small bowl, stir together the 2 tsp. of cornstarch and water. Whisk together the egg whites and the 2 Tbsp. of cornstarch. Brush the skinless side of the salmon with the egg white mixture and dip into the sesame seeds to coat. In a large non-stick skillet, heat the oil overmoderately high heat. Place the salmon in the skillet, sesame seed side down and cook until golden brown, about 5 – 7 minutes. Turn and cook about 5 minutes longer for a 1 inch filet. Remove from pan. Pour any oil from pan and add the soy sauce mixture. Simmer for 2 minutes and then add the cornstarch and water mixture and cook until thickened, 1 minute longer. Serve sauce over salmon.
