Serves 3


2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 teaspoons honey

1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds, plus more for serving

3 (8-ounce) skin-on center-cut wild sockeye salmon fillets

Kosher salt

1 bunch scallions

1 Fresno chile, thinly sliced


Whisk garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, honey, 1 Tbsp. oil, and 1/2 tsp. sesame seeds in a small bowl. Season salmon fillets with salt and place in a resealable plastic bag; add half of marinade. Seal bag, pressing out air, and let salmon sit 30 minutes. Reserve remaining marinade.

Preheat broiler. Toss scallions with remaining 2 tsp. oil on *sizzle platter; broil until lightly charred, about 3 minutes. Remove salmon from marinade and set on top of scallions. Spoon some reserved marinade over and broil until salmon is charred around edges, about 6 minutes (watch closely to keep from burning). Spoon more marinade over; top with chile. Broil until salmon is charred and medium-rare at thickest part, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with more sesame seeds.

*If you don’t want to invest in a sizzle platter, you can also make this recipe using a rimmed baking sheet.
