Sesame Salmon With Pinot Noir Glaze

Sesame Salmon With Pinot Noir Glaze

Sesame seeds create a delightful, nutty crust that complements the rich flavor and texture of a Pacific Northwest seafood treasure—salmon.

  • Course:
  • Servings: Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

4 salmon fillets (4- to 6-oz each), no more than 1½ inches thick
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup sesame seeds
3 Tbsp DLM Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup pinot noir
1 Tbsp DLM 100% Pure Honey

Directions:

Season the fillets on both sides with salt and pepper. Coat the flesh side of the salmon fillets with the sesame seeds, pressing lightly to adhere. Drizzle top with a little olive oil.

In a small pot, bring the pinot noir and honey up to a boil. Lower the heat to medium and let reduce by half. Set aside.

In a large sauté pan, heat 2 Tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat. Place the sesame seed side down in the pan. Leave alone and let sear in pan at least 5 to 7 minutes so the sesame seeds get seared into flesh and are golden brown. Flip fillet over carefully and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Lower the heat and add the reduced pinot noir mixture. Let cook another 5 minutes or until the fish is cooked to your liking. Serve with the reduced pan sauce.
