Ingredients

1/3 cup soy sauce

2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 (6-ounce) salmon filets, skin removed
Coarsely ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

  1. Combine soy sauce, sugar, sesame and garlic in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Add salmon, seal bag and turn to coat salmon well. Refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 8 hours.
  2. Remove salmon from marinade (discard marinade or save some for drizzling on salmon while cooking). Coat fillet side of salmon with very coarsely ground black pepper.
  3. Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Place salmon skin-side up in pan and sauté about 7 minutes. Flip and sauté other side about 7 minutes, until fish flakes with a fork.
