Servings: 4 people


  • 3 lbs boneless salmon (I prefer wild caught)
  • 2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

For the Sauce

  • 1/2 cup mayonaise (see images above for the brand I prefer)
  • 3 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp siracha (see images above for brand I prefer)
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp seasme oil


  • 1/4 cup black sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro


  • Pre-heat over to 400 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Rinse salmon with cold water and pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Place salmon on baking tray and season with onion powder, garlic powder and pepper.
  • Roast salmon in over for 15 minutes.
  • While salmon is roasting place all ingredients for the sauce in a blender or food processor: mayo, dijon mustard, garlic, siracha, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, honey, and seasme oil. Blend until emulsified.
  • When timer beeps on the over remove salmon and pour the sauce over the salmon.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds and return to over for 15 minutes. *Optional: at 13 minutes, you can turn the over off and set to broil for 2-4 minutes to lightly crisp the top. Make sure you watch it closely.
  • Remove from over and top with freshly chopped cilantro.
  • It's great served with cooked vegetables and/or jasmine rice!
