2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
To make the marinade, whisk together the sesame oil and soy sauce. In a large baking dish, brush or rub the marinade over the salmon. Let it stand, flesh-side down, in the marinade for 30 minutes at room temperature, or for 60 minutes in the refrigerator before cooking.
