Glazed Salmon with Sesame Watercress Salad


This flavor-packed salmon dish is served with a crisp watercress and radish salad for an easy dinner recipe that tastes like a gourmet dish.

Servings: 2

Yield: 2 10-ounce pieces salmon

For the salmon:

  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/4-pound salmon fillet

For the salad:

  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 cups packed watercress leaves
  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced and cut into matchsticks
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds


For the salmon:

  1. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine brown sugar, soy sauce and Dijon mustard. Microwave until sugar has just melted, about 10-15 seconds. Arrange salmon on baking sheet with skin-side down and brush half of the glaze over the top of the salmon fillet.
  2. Roast 10 minutes. Brush with remaining glaze and continue to roast until salmon is cooked through and flakes with a fork, about 8-10 minutes.

For the salad:

  1. While salmon is cooking, in a medium bowl, whisk rice vinegar, sesame oil and soy sauce until blended. Add watercress leaves and radishes and toss until lightly coated.
  2. Transfer salmon to a serving plate. Top with watercress salad and sesame seeds.
