Marinate the salmon in the ginger, sesame oil, coconut amino sauce, red chili flakes and black pepper for 30 minutes to 3 hours prior to cooking.

Heat a large ceramic coated frying pan over medium heat with coconut oil and add the salmon skin side down (reserve the marinade). This prevents the fish from sticking to the pan as well as prevents the meat from shrinking up.

After 3 minutes turn the fish and add the marinade, and cook another 2 to 3 minutes.
