Pan fried Salmon with Asian Glaze March 16, 2010

This is what I made tonight, it was healthy, yummy & yup, so easy to make.

I kinda invented this dish (inspired from a cod version i had at a restaurant) so I don’t really have a measure by measure recipe.

This is roughly how it was made:

For the Salmon:

Fresh salmon, skin on (chose pieces that are at least 1.5inch thick)

Marinate salmon with salt & pepper, generously dust corn flour on the skin (this creates a crispy skin when fried)

Heat heavy based pan/grill pan till really hot, add oil. Place salmon skin side down, leave it to crisp the skin for about 3mins.

Pop it into the over (preheated at 180C) to finish cooking (about 4mins). This cooks the flesh of the salmon.

For the Asian glaze:

Heat oil in small pan. Throw in some sliced onions, cherry tomatoes. Fry till soft.

Add about 2-3tbsp of soya sauce, 1.5tbsp of sugar and  1.5 cups water.Let it simmer for abit.

Add corn flour to thicken the sauce.

Taste the sauce, it should have a salty-sweetish flavour like a teriyaki sauce.  (adjust to preferred taste. eg. add more water if too salty, or more sugar if you prefer it more sweet)

I usually serve it with some vegetables on the side (i used garlic wilted spinach here but goes well with mash potato as well).

Dress it up with some chopped spring onions/coriander.

YuM! =)
