1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for the skillet

3 tablespoons soy sauce 

2 tablespoons sesame oil 

1 tablespoon minced ginger 

1 tablespoon maple syrup 

1 tablespoon Chinese mustard 

1 tablespoon sriracha 

2 cloves garlic, minced 

4 skin-on salmon fillets

1 bunch scallions, chopped, for topping 


  1. Combine the olive oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, maple syrup, Chinese mustard, sriracha and garlic in a large bowl. Pour one-third into a small bowl and reserve. Add the salmon fillets to the large bowl. Marinate, covered, in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil to coat the skillet. Add the salmon skin-side down and cook until crispy, about 5 minutes. Baste the flesh side with the reserved marinade. Flip and cook until the salmon is cooked through and the flesh side is golden brown, an additional 3 to 4 minutes. Top with the scallions.
