Soy and ginger glazed salmon
Not going to rant once more about my love for salmon, it's common knowledge now! So here's a soy and ginger glazed salmon recipe, with a sweet touch of honey and a spicy kick from the Sriracha to brighten it all.
So so simple to make. I serve this on a bed of rice with steamed veggies (usually zucchini or broccoli), light, healthy and so good.
Soy and ginger glazed salmon (serves 4) :
- 4 salmon fillets
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 grated garlic cloves
- 2 tsp grated ginger
- 1 tsp ginger
- 1/2 tsp Sriracha sauce
- Sesame seeds (optional)
- Olive oil
Start by prepping the sauce. Mix in a small sauce pan the soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic and ginger.
Heat a bit of olive oil in a non stick pan and cook the salmon on medium-high heat skin side down for 6 minutes (or a bit more if it's extra thick).
Meanwhile, take the sauce pan and bring the content to a slow boil, lower the heat and cook until it starts to thicken.
Turn the heat off, add honey and Sriracha, mix. Put it back on the stove on low, don't bring to a boil, cook until syrupy.
When the salmon has been cooking for 6 minutes, brush it generously with the soy-ginger glaze. Let it cook 1 or 2 more minutes.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve!
