Sesame Crusted Salmon with Wasabi Aioli

The combination of toasty sesame seeds and wasabi is one of my absolute faves. This meal could not be easier, but it packs a huge flavor punch. Serve this with zucchini noodles or quinoa and you have a dinner that not only tastes great, but is full of healthy fats as well.


1. Combine aioli ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.


2. Place sesame seeds in a shallow dish and mix to combine. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Press the sesame seeds onto the salmon and coat well.



3. Heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Add the coconut oil. Once the oil is melted, add the salmon and cook 3 minutes per side, or until the salmon is flaky and the sesame seeds are well toasted.


4. Transfer the salmon to serving plates and top with aioli.
