Garnish (optional)


  • Preheat oven or grill to 375.
  • Whisk together marinade.
  • Lay salmon in baking dish and pour marinade over it. Allow salmon to marinate for at least 10 minutes. 1-2 hours is best.
  • Lay salmon on grilling mat or wrap in a piece of aluminum foil. Cook for 15 minutes. Do not flip! You can test to see if the salmon is done by seeing if it flakes with a fork.
  • Serve over rice, a salad, or with veggies.



Substitutions for this recipe:

  • Coconut aminos - if you don't have coconut aminos you can sub in soy sauce or liquid aminos, but the recipe will no longer be whole30/paleo
  • Ginger - if you don't have fresh ginger you can sub 1/2 tbsp fresh grated ginger with 1/2 teaspoon dried ground ginger
  • Spicier - Feel free to add a little sriracha if you like some heat!
  • Honey - You can add 1 tablespoon of honey to the marinade to enhance the flavor of it if you are not paleo/whole30
  • WW Freestyle Note: To save on points cut back on the sesame oil. Sesame oil is 4SP per 1 tablespoon. If you cut the oil to 1/8 cup, you will still get the flavor and save 4SP per serving
