Honey-Sesame Glazed Salmon and Broccoli
Steam Broccoli. You shouldn't need a recipe for this.
For the salmon: Coat each side in grapeseed oil and season to your liking. I used fresh ground pepper, some seafood seasoning (just a mix of herbs and spices), and some garlic powder. Then grill flesh side down for 4-6 minutes. Then flip. Grill for another 8 minutes, then for the last 2-4 minutes drizzle the top of the flesh with some honey and immediately sprinkle some sesame seeds on there. Quickly close the grill cover. This will help sear the honey into the meat as well as toast the sesame seeds. I'd suggest using a sesame seed dispenser with holes: as you can see I basically ended up with a deluge of seeds on my salmon... it ended up tasting good though. It has a nice sweet touch from the honey, which is intertwined with the savory of the seasoning and the oil. You could also make a sweet honey sauce for this as well by mixing dried mustard (1/4 tsp) with 1 raw egg and 3-4 tbs of oil. Once thick, stir in some old bay seasoning and honey. We did not do that and I don't think it needed it. I think salmon only needs sauce when over cooked and dry.
