Honey-Soy Broiled Salmon

From: EatingWell

A sweet, tangy and salty mixture of soy sauce, rice vinegar and honey does double-duty as marinade and sauce. Toasted sesame seeds provide a nutty and attractive accent. Make it a meal: Serve with brown rice and sauteed red peppers and zucchini slices.

1   scallion, minced
2 tablespoons  reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon  rice vinegar
1 tablespoon  honey
1 teaspoon  minced fresh ginger
1 pound  center-cut salmon fillet, skinned (see Tip) and cut into 4 portions
1 teaspoon  toasted sesame seeds, (see Tip)
1. Whisk scallion, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and ginger in a medium bowl until the honey is dissolved. Place salmon in a sealable plastic bag, add 3 tablespoons of the sauce and refrigerate; let marinate for 15 minutes. Reserve the remaining sauce.
2. Preheat broiler. Line a small baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.
3. Transfer the salmon to the pan, skinned-side down. (Discard the marinade.) Broil the salmon 4 to 6 inches from the heat source until cooked through, 6 to 10 minutes. Drizzle with the reserved sauce and garnish with sesame seeds.
Tips: How to skin a salmon fillet: Place skin-side down. Starting at the tail end, slip a long knife between the fish flesh and the skin, holding down firmly with your other hand. Gently push the blade along at a 30 degrees angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either.
To toast sesame seeds, heat a small dry skillet over low heat. Add seeds and stir constantly, until golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool.

Really easy and quite good! Next time I think I will try to add a little more flavor to the salmon somehow. Maybe it would be good to add some more of the sauce while cooking to get a nice sweet, sticky texture on the outside.
