Firecracker Salmon

My husband made Firecracker Salmon for us last night - yummm. Here is the recipe as written, but you can play with the ingredients and proportions to suit your taste or pantry.

Firecracker Salmon

about a pound of salmon
2 tbsp chopped green onions
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and minced
1/2 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp kosher or sea salt
3/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Place salmon fillets skin side down in a lightly oiled glass baking dish big enough that the pieces don't overlap (if you have pieces - we usually buy the gigantic fillets at Costco and cut them down to size). Cover dish with plastic or aluminum foil and refrigerate.

Combine all other ingredients in a glass bowl, mix thoroughly, let stand 15-20 minutes and mix once or twice more before pouring over the salmon. Cover and marinate salmon at least one hour in the refrigerator, preferably two.

Preheat oven to 375°F, uncover and bake salmon for about 20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets and preference for doneness. The liquid from the baking dish can be used as a sauce.
