1/10 tsp Black pepper (or to taste)
1/2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1/8 tbsp minced Ginger root (or grated)
1/3 stalk(s) Green onion, scallion, ramp (thinly sliced)
0.04 cup Honey
1/8 tsp Hot sauce (preferably Sriracha, optional)
1/8 tbsp Rice vinegar
1 fillet (4oz) Atlantic salmon, farmed (around 2 pounds)
1/8 tbsp Sesame oil
1/10 tsp Sesame seeds
1/3 tbsp Soy sauce, low sodium


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. 

Whisk honey, garlic, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, hot sauce (sriracha) and pepper in a small bowl. 

Place salmon in foil and fold up all 4 sides (to create a bowl like structure). Spoon the honey mixture over the salmon. Fold sides of foil and make sure it's sealed on all sides. 

Place in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. Then broil for 2-3 minutes to give the salmon a crisp outer layer. 

Serve, garnished with green onions and sesame seeds.
