Asian inspired salmon

SalmonSweet and salty marinated Salmon.

Asian flavor profiles are some of my faveriot to ea, but are missing from my cooking repitore.  Tonight I’m going to try a healthy, quick, and easy salmon dinner with Asian inspired veggies and sauce.

This marinade should be quite acidic and mildly sweet and salty. If your marinade tastes  too salty, you’ve probably put in too much fish Sauce.

Marinade:

  • 1 teaspoon grated lime rind
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Combine the ingredients and marinate your fish for one hour. I’m using Salmon tonight, but any strong fish would work well with this dish.

Vegetables:

  • 3 baby bok choy, halved
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 pound of crimini mushrooms
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 2 pounds of asparagus

I’m steaming these vegetable to keep them light and help them retain their natural flavor and nutrients.

While your vegetables are steaming brown one large onion, cut intro large strips and 2 smashed cloves of garlic. Remove them from the heat and set aside.

Using that same pan, saute your fish on medium heat. Adding some of your marinade to the pan for flavor.

Remove the vegetables from the heat and combine with cooked onions and garlic. I’m tossing them with two table spoons of Soy Ginger dressing from Whole Foods.

Plate your meal and enjoy.

Marinade aside, this meal only takes about 30 minutes.
Pictures and reviews coming soon.
