Fire up your Ooni pizza oven. Aim for 662°F (350°C) on the stone baking board inside. You can check the temperature inside your Ooni quickly and easily using an infrared thermometer.
Preheat your Ooni Cast Iron Pan in your Ooni pizza oven with a splash of oil for 3 minutes.
Brush your salmon fillets with olive oil and place them in your hot sizzler pan. Return the pan to the oven and cook the fillets for 4-5 minutes until opaque, making sure to flip the pan round to ensure an even cook.
Remove the pan from the oven and brush the fillets with your glaze. Finish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds, fresh parsley and sliced scallions. Serve right away with a portion of your favorite veg and a glass of crisp white wine.
