Maple Ginger Salmon

(recipe by TheSalmons)

Ingredients:

  • 2 fresh salmon fillets (approx. 0.5 lbs each)
  • 2 scallions or 1 shallot
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 inch fresh ginger
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. seasame oil
  • 2 tbsp. orange juice or water
  • salt/pepper to taste

Add a little oil to a non-stick skillet put it on medium-high heat. It may be convenient to cut each salmon fillet in half. Season with a little salt and pepper. Add the salmon, skin side down, to the hot pan and cook, loosely covering the pan with aluminum foil, 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until the skin is crispy and the fish is cooked through. Transfer the cooked fish to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

While the fish cooks, mince garlic and ginger, slice scallions, and have the other ingredients lined up and ready to use.

In the same pan used to cook the fish, heat 2 teaspoons of oil on medium until hot. Add the garlic, ginger and white parts of the scallions and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until softened and fragrant.

Add the orange juice, maple syrup, soy sauce, and sesame oil and cook, stirring occasionally, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until well combined and slightly thickened.

Return the cooked salmon to the pan of glaze, skin side down. Cook, spooning the sauce over the salmon to completely coat, 1 to 2 minutes or until the sauce is reduced in volume and thickened.

Serve with a side salad, spooning the glaze on top of the fish.
