Tamari Marinated Salmon

Over the past year I have found it increasingly difficult to eat Asian inspired foods out in a restaurant as all the sauces and marinades are packed with refined sugar and if you ask for adjustments to be made, the usual response is that they can’t accommodate as the food will be very bland and they prefer for me not to have that experience. However Asian food does not have to be bland at all without the inclusion of refined sugar. Try out this recipe and let me know what you think.


4 x 180g Salmon fillets
½ cup tamari
1 garlic glove minced
1-2 tablespoons raw honey (depending on how sweet you like it)
¼ teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons sesame seeds


Prepare marinade by combining tamari, garlic, honey, salt and sesame seeds.
Marinade salmon for up to 30 minutes prior to cooking.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Prepare salmon by placing skin side down on tray lined with baking paper.
Bake for 15-20 minutes depending on how you like to eat your salmon.
