Vitamin D & Sesame-Crusted Salmon

April 5, 2011

Sunshine & strong breezes in April are never a surprise. This past Saturday was one of the most beautiful Spring days we have had so far. I took full advantage by soaking up some vitamin D on the chaise lounge that I moved from the screened in deck to the driveway – the only place on our property with full sun. Feel free to follow suit, just remember that vitamin D is formed just under the skin after exposure to sunlight & needs 12 – 24 hours to be absorbed by the body. Do not wash the exposed area with soap during the 24 hour period for maximum absorption.

Sesame-Crusted Salmon

Keep taking your cod liver oil supplement daily & eat salmon for a healthy level of vitamin D!


  • 6 wild-caught (not farm-raised!) Salmon Steaks (Sashimi grade is best)
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted Butter
  • 4 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 4 Tablespoons minced fresh Ginger
  • 1 cup Sesame Seeds
  • Sea Salt & Pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 475°F.
  2. In a small pan melt the butter & oil with the ginger.
  3. Brush the butter, oil, & ginger on the pieces of salmon.
  4. Roll the salmon in the sesame seeds.
  5. Place the salmon on an oiled glass casserole dish & refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove the salmon to the oven; roast until the sesame seeds are brown & the salmon is rare inside, about 3 minutes.
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
