There’s a local fish market restaurant my family loves. They serve simple, delicious and healthy fish dishes with your choice of sauce. It’s really the sauce that characterizes each dish, and one of our favorite is the Asian inspired sauce that has our family returning often to this restaurant.
Recently I decided to try making my own. It turned out so good, my family raved about it! Though I’m not great at cooking fish, this sauce makes up for any short comings while cooking salmon.
Directions for red bell peppers and asparagus:
Slice bell peppers and saute with olive oil and salt on medium high heat for 15 minute. Do the same for the asparagus, but keep them whole and only trim the ends off.
Cook salmon on an oiled pan on medium heat for about 3-5 minutes on each side, starting with the skin side down.
I used a wild rice medley from Trader Joe’s to accompany this meal. I followed the directions on the package, only adding salt and olive oil.
Sauce for salmon:
In a dish, mix together the following ingredients:
-juice of one lemon
-2-3 tablespoons of fresh garlic-ginger paste
-1-2 tablespoons of finely diced red onion
-1/4 teaspoon of sesame seeds
-2 tablespoons of sesame seed oil
-1 cup of soy sauce
-2 smashed red peppers for spice
Drizzle sauce on salmon and grilled veggies if desired.
Serve with this side salad for a complete healthy meal.
