Don’t force kids to eat things they don’t like; instead, work with them to find foods in each category they enjoy. “(My daughter) Oceane just wasn’t a fan of fish flavors, until she tried this sweet salmon.”
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for brushing
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 4 5-to-6-ounce wild salmon fillets, skin removed
  1. Combine 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, the soy sauce, lemon juice, onion, brown sugar, garlic, sesame oil, and pepper to taste in a bowl or large resealable plastic bag. Add the salmon and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 3 hours, preferably most of the day.
  2. Preheat the broiler and line a broiler pan with foil. Place the salmon on the foil (reserve the marinade) and brush with vegetable oil. Broil for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the salmon is opaque. Meanwhile, strain the marinade and simmer in a saucepan over medium-low heat until slightly reduced. Serve the salmon with the sauce on the side.
