To Make the Salmon
1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a shallow bowl. Add the salmon, and turn to coat well in the mixture. Let stand, loosely covered, 1 hour.
2. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
3. Spread out the sesame and the celery seeds in a small baking pan. Place the pan in the oven and toast the seeds until they are lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Check after 3 minutes and if the seeds are not done, shake the pan and continue to toast, watching carefully to prevent burning. Remove from the oven and set aside.
4. Preheat the broiler.
5. Broil the salmon steaks 5 minutes per side. Serve with 1 to 2 slices of sesame butter, each about 1/4 inch thick on top. Sprinkle with the toasted sesame and celery seeds.
To Make the Sesame Butter
Stir all ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth. Shape into a cylinder and roll in aluminum foil or waxed paper. Chill until firm.
