This simple salmon recipe yields a tender fillet with delicate flavors with some sweet and smoky leek.


Units Scale
  • 3/4 pound salmon steak
  • 1 thumb size ginger, peeled and grated
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 1 stalk leek, halved lengthwise and sliced into 2-inch thick pieces


  1. In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, 1 tablespoon oil, grated ginger and a pinch of salt. Refrigerate and marinate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. In a sheet tray, spread the leeks around and add a pinch of salt. Put in the oven and cook for about 25 minutes.
  3. Check on your leeks every 10 minutes to make sure they are not becoming too charred. Take them out when they are tender – about 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. In a pan over medium high heat, add 2 tablespoon oil. When the oil is hot, add the salmon – do not throw away the marinade – and cook for 2 minutes. Flip the steak over, add 2 tablespoons of the marinade and cook for another 2 minutes.
  5. Serve with leeks and season with salt and pepper.


Save the leftovers in a container and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
