Place the salmon fillets in a high-sided dish where they’ll fit snugly. Pour in most of the All-Purpose Stir-Fry Sauce, but reserve about 2 tablespoons of it. (You’ll brush it on at the end to add an extra punch of umami.)
Turn the salmon in the marinade to coat well. Keep the fillets skin-side up in the marinade until you’re ready to cook. (Marinate the fish for as little as 15 minutes, but no longer than 8 hours in a sealed container in the fridge.)
Heat the oven to 400°F with the rack in the middle.
Place the salmon, skin-side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet.Pour some of the marinade from the dish onto the salmon (not the 2 tablespoons of reserved “clean” All-Purpose Stir-Fry Sauce).
Bake the salmon for 8 to 12 minutes or until it is cooked to your preferred doneness. (I like the salmon cooked to about medium, about 130°F to 135°F in the thickest part of the fillet.)
Once the salmon is finished cooking, brush on the reserved “fresh” All-Purpose Stir-Fry Sauce (not the stuff the salmon was marinated in) to add a bright kick of flavor.
Sprinkle on toasted sesame seeds and sliced scallions.
