Ingredients

  • 6 pieces of fresh salmon about 2" wide/4 ounce
  • 1/2 cup Brown Swerve
  • 1/2 cup Liquid Aminos
  • 1 teaspoon  Sambal plain or garlic
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger grated
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic grated
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Optional: Garnish with sesame seeds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Mix all the ingredients in a cup and into a small saucepan over medium heat.  Simmer until reduced by by about a third.  It should be on the thick and sticky side.
  • Place the salmon (skin side down) on a wire baking rack sprayed with nonstick spray and lined with foil to make cleanup much easier!  Brush the salmon with the glaze on all sides and bake for 10 minutes.  
  • Remove the salmon from the oven and increase the temperature to 450F. Brush some more of the glaze over the tops and bake for another 3-5 minutes on the top rack of your oven. Watch it closely, to make sure it doesn't burn!
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving. I like to serve mine with my Lime Cilantro Cauliflower Rice.
