  • Heat oils in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté salmon 3 to 4 minutes, turn, and brush with remaining soy mixture. Cook 3 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and chives.

  • Wine note: Amy Arrington, from Southern Wine and Spirits in Charleston, South Carolina, suggests wine options to serve with this meal: “Franciscan Chardonnay, with its ripe fruitiness, full body, and creamy texture, pairs nicely with the salmon—it can stand up to salmon's substantial taste but has enough acidity for contrast. Esser Vineyard's food-friendly Pinot Noir makes a tasty complement to the fish's richness, and its low tannins don't interfere with salmon's beautiful flavors.
