  • Baking Sheet
  • Aluminum foil


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon five spice powder
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 salmon filets
  • cooking spray
  • 1 pound green beans washed and trimmed
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil or other neutral oil
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges for serving


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, five spice powder, and garlic.
  • Place the salmon on a platter, flesh side up and pour the marinade over it. Turn skin side up so the flesh is in the marinade. Let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  • About 5-10 minutes before the salmon is finished marinating, place a rack 6 inches from the heat and preheat the broiler on high.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a bowl toss the green beans with the neutral oil and sesame oil. Place on half of the baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Place the salmon on the other half of the baking sheet and brush the marinade over it.
  • Broil for 3 minutes, then toss the green beans a bit and add the lemon wedges. Finish broiling for 2-3 more minutes.
  • Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet, over medium heat, until golden.
  • Serve sprinkled with the sesame seeds and lemon wedge.
