6 to 8 servings


  • 1/2 cup organic tamari soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup organic grade-A maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 3 pounds Alaskan wild salmon fillets, cut into 7- to 8-ounce portions, skin removed
  • Serving suggestion: crispy greens such as baby greens, spinach and kale with tomato, avocado and micro greens


Whisk together the soy sauce, mustard, syrup, pepper, sesame seeds and salt in a large bowl. Add the salmon fillets and marinate for 30 to 40 minutes.

Preheat a flat skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the salmon for 4 to 6 minutes per side for desired doneness. Before removing from the skillet, brush each side once more with the marinade. Sear for a few more minutes to brown.

Serve the salmon with the greens and vegetables.


Cook Notes: The salmon can also be served over veggies, such as zucchini, squash, asparagus, mushrooms and bell peppers sauteed in coconut oil, alongside greens, tomatoes and avocados.
