Asian Salmon…mmm…mmm…good!

8 Jan

So, in keeping with my New Year’s Promise To Myself That I Will Eat Out No More Than Once A Week (NOT a resolution), I whipped up a little dish last night that was so absolutely painfully easy to make, but was so incredibly delicious! For fans of salmon, get ready!

  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup Sri Racha
  • 1/4 sweet geinger chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp minced red onions
  • 2 pounds salmon filets (2 nice size filets)

In a bowl, whisk together all the ingredients well. Place the filets into a glass baking dish, skin side up. Pour half the marinade into the baking dish. Set the remainder of the marinade aside for later use. Cover the salmon and place in the refrigerator. Let salmon marinade for at LEAST an hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the salmon for 20 minutes on the center rack.

While the salmon is baking, take the sauce thaat was set aside and place into a saucepan. Cook the sauce under a very low simmer for about 5 minutes to reduce the sauce.

After 20 minutes, turn on the broiler. Place the salmon  under the broiler until there is a nice char on the skin (approximately 5-10 minutes depending on your taste).

Serve with brown or jasmine rice. Top the salmon with the reduced sauce and voila!

I served mine with some jasmine rice with a little saffron and cilantro tossed in.
