Asian Style Salmon

Asian Style Salmon

Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
2
cm piece of fresh ginger
2
cloves of garlic
1
small red onion
1/2
a fresh red chili
1
tbsp soy sauce
2
limes
4
x 180g salmon fillets, skin on, scaled and pin-boned
chinese five-spice
Directions
1.
1. Preheat the oven to 250°C.
2.
2. Place the salmon on a chopping board and evenly score a few 1cm deep slices into the skin (skin side, not the meat side). This will help the salmon to absorb the flavor of the sauce as well as helping it to cook more quickly.
3.
3. Drizzle a little olive oil over the salmon and then sprinkle on some Chinese five-spice, salt and pepper. Rub the spices in to the salmon and let it sit for 5 minutes.
4.
4. Peel the ginger, then peel and roughly chop the onion and place in a blender.
5.
5. Crush two garlic cloves into the blender along with the chili and soy sauce.
6.
6. Squeeze in the juice of the limes and blend until you have a smooth sauce.
7.
7. Pour the sauce into an ovenproof dish that can accommodate the salmon fillets without too much excess room. The idea is to poach the salmon while it bakes in the oven.
8.
8. Place the fillets into the ovenproof dish, skin side up, then put it into the oven on the top shelf to cook for 18 minutes.
