Ingredients

  • Salmon steaks or fillets (6 oz. each)  ·  4 whole 
  • olive oil  ·  2 tablespoons 
  • balsamic vinegar  ·  1 tablespoon 
  • minced garlic  ·  1 tablespoon 
  • honey  ·  1 tablespoon 
  • garlic, minced  ·  2 cloves 
  • scallions finely sliced (green part only)  ·  2 whole 
  • grated ginger  ·  2 tablespoons 
  • vegetable or canola oil for searing  ·  3 tablespoons 
  • Soy sauce (can use gluten free)  ·  1 cup 
  • Hoisin sauce (use Tamari Hoisin sauce for gluten free)  ·  2 tablespoons 

Instructions

Mix together marinade ingredients in a bowl or shallow dish, add the salmon steaks, marinate for 10 minutes.

Place marinated salmon on well-oiled griddle or cast iron skillet preheated to medium-high heat (230°C / 450°F).

Cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning once during cooking, just until the fish is caramelized and opaque.

You can use salmon fillets or salmon steaks in this recipe. The steaks are larger than the fillets so they will take more time to cook and the classic rule: fish cooks about 10 minutes per inch of thickness. And the doneness tests include: opaque flesh, flesh flaking when twisted with a fork, and flesh that springs back when pressed.
