Broiled Salmon with Sesame Seeds and Scallions

Tasty and easy Bon Appetit recipe, tweaked only ever so slightly.

Serve with steamed white rice and a vegetable side such as sunomono-style cucumbers or stir-fried broccoli.

2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
½ teaspoon sesame seeds, plus more for serving
2 8-ounce skin-on center-cut salmon fillets
Kosher salt
1 bunch scallions
1 Fresno chile, thinly sliced

Whisk garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, honey, 1 Tbsp. oil, and ½ tsp. sesame seeds in a small bowl. Season salmon fillets with salt and place in a resealable plastic bag; add 1/3 of marinade. Seal bag, pressing out air, and let salmon sit 30 minutes. Reserve remaining marinade.

Preheat broiler. Toss scallions with remaining 2 tsp. oil on rimmed baking sheet. Broil until lightly charred, about 3 minutes.

Remove salmon from marinade and set on top of scallions. Spoon about half of reserved marinade over, sprinkle with chiles, and broil until salmon is charred and medium-rare at thickest point, around 8 minutes watch closely to keep from burning). Spoon more marinade over, top with sesame seeds, and serve!
