FOR THE SALAD

In a small dish; whisk together soy sauce, sesame seed oil, dark brown sugar, zest and juice until sugar dissolves. Pour half of the marinade/ glaze over top of the salmon fillets and set remaining glaze aside. Toss the salmon until nicely coated and let marinate for 15-20 minutes on the counter top. Meanwhile preheat the broiler.
Once marinated place the salmon on a lightly oiled and foil lined sheet pan and discard used marinade. Place salmon under the broiler and cook for 4-6 minutes, turn and repeat for another 4-6 minutes or until salmon is fully cooked and flakes.
In a large bowl toss the salad greens with the carrots and cabbage. Plate a portion of salad on to a large plate. Place a piece of still warm salmon in the center. Drizzle with a little bit of the remaining glaze and season with black pepper and sea salt to taste. Garnish with little squeeze of fresh orange juice and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Serve.
