Watch the video for this recipe:

Salmon is one of the most delicious and healthy fish you can prepare for your family or friends as is full of vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids. I usually like to use  the wild caught salmon whenever that is possible as it contains more minerals and less fat.

 

This Baked Sesame Salmon recipe is very easy and quick to prepare. The salmon pieces are marinated in a soy sauce, honey, ginger, sesame oil and garlic mixture which gives salmon a great flavor and a great balance between sweet and spicy. There’s no way not to fall in love with this recipe from the first bite.
