1 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
¼ cup honey
½ teaspoon finely minced garlic
4 pieces (about 6 oz. each) salmon fillet (Pacific wild-caught if available), skin on
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1. Mix soy sauce, honey and garlic in a 1- or 2-quart pan. Stir often over medium-high heat until glaze is reduced by about a third, 7 to 10 minutes.
2. Pour 3 tablespoons glaze into a small bowl and set aside. Pour remaining glaze into a shallow 2- to 3-quart baking dish. Place salmon pieces in baking dish, skin side up and allow to stand 15 minutes. Turn salmon pieces over with skin down.
3. Bake at 450° until salmon has turned opaque at the edges but is still translucent in the center (cut to test), 15 - 20 minutes. Remove from oven.
4. Increase oven heat to broil. Brush salmon evenly with about half the reserved glaze and sprinkle the tops evenly with sesame seeds. Broil 6 inches from the heat until the sesame seeds are toasted and the salmon is opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part (cut to test), 2 - 3 minutes. Remove from broiler.
5. Use a wide spatula to transfer pieces to plates. Lightly drizzle salmon with remaining reserved glaze before serving.
