Recipe for Sweet Salmon With Ginger And Scallions


    Sweet Salmon with Ginger and Scallions

    2 (1-inch thick) salmon filets
    2 scallions, cut into 2-inch long strips
    1/4 cup ginger, cut into 1/4-inch thick chunks
    1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/4 cup white wine, rice wine or sweet sake
    1/2 cup water
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 teaspoon granulated sugar
    Salt and pepper
    Sesame oil (optional)

    Heat oil in pan on high heat. Salt and pepper both sides of the salmon filets.

    Place filets in pan skin-side down and do not disturb. Cook on high for 40 sec. Turn heat down to medium-high and continue to cook for 3 minutes.

    Turn filets over and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove filets from pan and set aside on a plate.

    Turn heat back up to high and add ginger and scallions. Cook until slightly tender (about 1 minute). Add wine and deglaze pan. Add soy sauce, water, and sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer.

    Place salmon filets carefully back into pan and simmer until salmon is cooked through (about 2 minutes). Drizzle with a few drops of sesame oil if desired.

    Serves 2 to 3.
