Salmon is that well known pink fish full of omega 3 fatty (the healthy kind) acids and other vitamins and nutrients that protect your heart, maintain your vitality and help your brain. It’s such a versatile fish that it can be prepared in so many different ways – smoked, raw, baked, fried and steamed – all of which I find tasty! One easy, healthy and quick meal to prepare during the dinner rush is pan-fried salmon steaks. So how do we make this?
- 1 salmon steak
- 1 green onion
- 1 inch ginger root
- Salt and pepper
- 1 tsp oil
- 2 tbsp light soy sauce
- Wash and pat dry the salmon with a paper towel.
- Cut green onion into 1 inch pieces.
- Slice the ginger into small slivers.
- Season the salmon with salt and pepper on both sides.
- In a hot pan, add some oil and pan fry the salmon. When it has nicely browned on one side, flip the salmon to the other side. When it’s cooked to your preferred “doneness”, put it aside on a plate.
- Cook the onion and ginger for a few minutes on the pan. Add on top of the salmon to get rid of some of the “fishy” smell.
- Just before you’re about to serve, add some soy sauce on top (doing it earlier may make your pan-fried salmon lose its crispiness).
The result is a delicious and quick meal that you can add to a side of rice and steamed veggies. Yum!
