⅓ cup Swerve confectioners’-style sweetener
¼ cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
1 ½ tbsp wheat-free tamari, or ¼ cup plus 2 tbsp coconut aminos
1 tbsp coconut vinegar or apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp toasted (dark) sesame oil
1 tsp fish sauce (optional, for umami taste)
1 tsp stone-ground mustard
3 cloves garlic, smashed to a paste or minced
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
227g (8oz) salmon fillets, cut into 1¼-inch by 2-inch-wide strips
½ tsp guar gum (optional, for thickening)
Black or toasted sesame seeds, for garnish Sliced scallions, for garnish
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the sweetener, lime juice, tamari, vinegar, sesame oil, fish sauce (if using), mustard, garlic, and ginger. Turn the salmon strips in the marinade to coat. Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to 2 hours to marinate.
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove the salmon from the marinade and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper; set aside the marinade. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, or until the salmon is flaky and the centre is no longer translucent.
- In the meantime, prepare the sauce: Place a small saucepan over medium-high heat and add the marinade. If using, sift in the guar gum and whisk until well combined. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. Adjust the seasoning to taste, adding more sweetener or lime juice if desired. Take the sauce off the heat and pour it over the salmon.
- Garnish with sesame seeds and scallions if desired. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to four days. To reheat, heat for about 5 minutes in a lightly greased skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
