Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Whisk the soy sauce, honey, mustard, ginger and Sriracha together in a bowl.
  3. Heat the oil in a large oven-safe saute pan over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and add them to the pan, presentation side down. Cook 2-3 minutes without moving, until a golden crust forms. Turn the fillets over and transfer the pan to the oven. Cook 5-6 minutes until salmon is just cooked through but still slightly pink in the middle. Carefully remove the pan from the oven and transfer the salmon to a platter.
  4. Pour off the drippings from the pan and heat the pan on the stove over medium high heat. Add the soy sauce mixture to the pan and cook 2-3 minutes until thickened. Pour the glaze over the salmon. Garnish with scallions if desired.
