LEVEL: EASY
SERVES: 4
INGREDIENTS

  • FOR THE SALMON
4 salmon fillets, skins removed (about 2 lbs. total)
2 tbsp. sesame oil
1 tbsp. honey
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 c. sesame seeds

  • FOR THE SAUCE
1 avocado, diced
Juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp. fresh cilantro
1 tbsp. Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
kosher salt
DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375º. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. Rinse salmon and pat dry, then place on baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine sesame oil, honey, garlic, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Rub salmon with mixture, then spread 1 tablespoon sesame seeds over each fillet.
  3. Bake salmon 15 to 20 minutes, depending on thickness (about 10 minutes per 1" thickness, measured from the thickest part of the fillet). For crispier edges, broil the last 3 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make the sauce: Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Taste and add salt as desired.
  5. Remove cooked salmon from oven and serve with avocado sauce.
