spicy sesame-lime salmon

2 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil, melted
4 (4- to 6-ounce) wild salmon fillets
4 tablespoons Spicy Sesame Ginger Dressing
2 tablespoons white sesame seeds
1 lime, cut into wedges
1 tablespoon red chili flakes (optional)

KITCHEN TIP Fish is one of the easiest proteins to cook, despite the rampant fear folks seem to have around preparing it! The keys to making tasty fish recipes at home are as follows: 1) Keep it simple—using basic seasoning and some lemon usually yields the best results; 2) cook it less than you think you need to—most fish cooks in well under 15 minutes, so it’s a perfect weeknight protein; and 3) buy it as fresh as you can afford—most people who’ve said they don’t like the fishy taste of fish have always eaten frozen or previously frozen fish. Buying fresh, wild-caught fish that’s on sale where you shop and cooking it that night will keep your fish tasting great and not super fishy!

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Brush an oven-safe pan with the ghee or coconut oil in the shape of your pieces of fish, then place the salmon in the pan on the greased areas.

Brush each piece of fish with 1 tablespoon of the Spicy Sesame Ginger Dressing, then sprinkle each piece with 1/2 tablespoon of the white sesame seeds.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the fish is light pink all the way through.

Squeeze a lime wedge over each piece of fish and sprinkle with chili flakes, if using.
