Servings 4 servings


  • 4 six ounce salmon fillets skinless
  • 1 cup untoasted sesame seeds
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 1 egg + 1 tbsp water beaten together as an egg wash

  1. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper.
  2. Dredge the pieces in flour to coat lightly. Next dip them in the egg wash and finally the sesame seeds, covering the fillet completely.
  3. Heat 4 tbsp olive oil in a heavy bottomed skillet over medium-low to medium flame, depending on your stove; hot or not too you will burn the sesame seeds.
