Ok, so Pintrest is extremely addicting. I spend lots of time scrolling through pictures and pinning things I love. I saw a sesame crusted salmon on Pintrest. I was salivating just looking at the picture. I wanted to make it so bad. I went to the store to get all the ingredients. The picture on Pintrest showed the salmon encrusted in black and white sesame seeds. Nob Hill Foods does not carry black sesame seeds. I was really bummed and I didn’t have time to go from store to store in search of… If anyone knows where I can get some locally, do tell. Anyway, I decided to go ahead and make the salmon with just the regular sesame seeds anyway.

5 PP per serving
1 egg white
3 tablespoons sesame seeds, lightly toasted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
4 pieces center-cut wild salmon fillet with skin (4 ounces each)
Lemon slices (optional)
In small bowl, lightly beat egg white with 1 tablespoon water. On waxed paper, mix sesame seeds, salt, and pepper. Dip flesh side of each piece of salmon fillet in egg-white mixture, then dip same side in sesame-seed mixture to coat.
Heat nonstick pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add salmon fillets, sesame-seed side down, and cook 3 minutes. With a spatula, turn salmon over and cook 5 to 7 minutes longer, until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve salmon with lemon slices if you like.
