  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Start Potatoes

    Turn oven on to 425 degrees. Let preheat, at least 10 minutes. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before cooking, and after handling raw meat. Remove all produce from any packaging or constraints, then thoroughly rinse and pat dry.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Drain potatoes.

    In provided tray, combine potatoes, black garlic seasoning, 2 tsp. olive oil, a pinch of salt, and white portions of green onions. Spread into an even layer.

    Bake uncovered in hot oven, 25 minutes.

    While potatoes bake, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Add the Salmon

    In a mixing bowl, combine panko, half the Asian garlic, ginger & chile seasoning (use less if spice-averse; reserve remaining for salmon), and sesame seeds.

    Pat salmon dry and season flesh side with remaining Asian garlic, ginger & chile seasoning (use less if spice-averse) and 1/4 tsp. salt. Coat flesh-side evenly with mayonnaise, then panko mixture, pressing gently to adhere.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add salmon, skin-side up, to hot pan. Sear on one side until golden-brown, 2-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    After 25 minutes, carefully remove tray from oven and push potatoes to one side of tray. Transfer salmon, seared-side up, to now-empty side of tray. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil.

  3. 3

    Bake the Meal

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until salmon is firm and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes.

    While meal bakes, cut lime into wedges.

    Carefully remove tray from oven.

    To serve, garnish salmon with green portions of green onions and top potatoes with sesame dressing. Squeeze lime wedges over to taste. Bon appétit!
