Slow Sesame Salmon

When it comes to cooking protein, I need a recipe that I can remember easily. Actually, this is what I need for any dish!

If you’ve never tried salmon cooked low and slow, now is the time!

I came up with this recipe one evening many years ago and have made it hundreds of times since. It’s my go-to recipe when planning a salmon dinner.

Why I love this recipe:

  • It’s easy to remember
  • It doesn’t require measurements (though I’ve provided them for you)
  • The oven does all the work, making it simple and clean
  • It only takes 30 minutes, which is perfect for preparing the rest of the meal and cleaning up
  • It’s delicious and healthy. That’s why I keep coming back to this recipe for cooking salmon time and time again.

I use coconut aminos, but a good wheat-free tamari works great too. You may want to omit the added salt as tamari is already very salty.


I have made this easy salmon over 100 times… I know this because its basically the only way Ive cooked salmon for the past 5 years #salmondinner #healthyfood #salmonrecipe

  • You can use tamari in place of coconut aminos. If doing this, omit salt.
