TAHINI SALMON

I had a recent discussion with a client who shared her love for tahini. However, she was feeling guilty about consuming too much of this nutritionally dense, yet calorically dense, sesame seed paste. Here is one recipe we created to enjoy the full flavor of tahini, but balanced with other ingredients to create a delightful and light dish.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Course Main Course
Servings 4

Ingredients
  

  • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets
  • 1 Tablespoon tahini
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: fresh thyme or rosemary

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400˚F.
  • Rinse and pat dry salmon fillets.
  • Cover a baking sheet with nonstick foil. Place salmon fillets on the baking sheet. In a small bowl mix the tahini, garlic, lemon juice, and oyster sauce. Cover salmon evenly with sauce.
  • Bake for 10–15 minutes or until salmon is cooked through. Broil on high for one extra minute and remove from oven. Top with freshly ground peppers and fresh herbs of your choice. Makes 4 servings.
