Sesame Salmon

Salmon is naturally high in omega-3 fats (a heart-healthy type of fat) and has a strong, rich flavor. So it needs only a few simple seasonings, such as soy sauce, sesame oil, and sesame seeds, to dress it up. Sesame oil is strong-flavored, so you need only a small amount to make a flavor impact.
