Salmon always tastes great whether it is simply baked, steamed, or smoked. It goes perfectly well with a lot of dishes and always seems to add a refined vibe to the dinner table. It’s also low in calories and a great option if you’re trying to lose weight. For a new take on salmon and a more exotic way of preparing it, try this soy salmon recipe over steamed rice and you will surely love it.
What You Will Need:
- Half a pound of salmon fillet, with the skin left intact
- A thin slice or two of ginger
- 3 tablespoons dark soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- Half a teaspoon of sesame seeds for garnish
- Half a teaspoon of red chili flakes
- A pinch of freshly ground black pepper
Let’s Cook Up Some Salmon!
- Prepare all the ingredients.
2. Marinate the salmon in the ginger, sesame oil, soy sauce, red chili flakes and black pepper for 30 minutes to 3 hours prior to cooking.
3. Start cooking by heating up a pan to medium to high heat and cooking the salmon skin side down. This prevents the fish from sticking to the pan as well as prevents shrinkage of the meat.
4. Flip and cook the other side after 3 minutes. Spoon the marinade over the salmon as it cooks.
5. Serve over steaming hot rice garnished with sesame seeds and some greens like spring onions or parsley. Enjoy!
