Sweet Norwegian Salmon

If you want to talk about eating fish, the only type of fish I simply love eating is salmon. There’s no way around it. I don’t like any other old fish all that much. Mostly, I can’t stand the smell of other normal fish but salmon, especially fresh ones, I think is simply heavenly. Also, I’ve mentioned before that salmon is very healthy and good for the heart.

So, recently, I went and bought a whole salmon and this is how I prepared the fish for two meals.

This is the easiest way to prepare salmon, especially if it is newly flown in from Norway and still quite fresh. Just slice it thinly and serve it raw with some wasabi and Japanese soya sauce. The Japanese way of eating salmon! If you feel squemish about it, don’t. It does not taste horrible or anything. In fact, the flesh is sweet and no, it does not have any fishy smell at all (as long as it is fresh and not a couple weeks old!)

The second salmon meal is:

Here’s the easy grilled salmon recipe that you can prepare within minutes!

Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce Recipe


1 piece of salmon steak

2 tbsp teriyaki sauce (you can get from any Japanese grocery store)

olive oil


1.Season the salmon with the sauce for about an hour or so.

2. Heat up the oil in a non-stick pan till it is just hot. Slide the salmon into the pan and grill till the fish is cooked through. You know it is cooked when it’s bright orangy pink colour turns opaque and is a light pink.

3. Serve hot.

I use this teriyaki sauce which is really good and tastes better than the grilled salmon in some Japanese restaurants.

    I don’t know the price about salmon but Rm40 per kg is kinda cheap. And actually I didn’t try salmon that hasn’t been cooked. Perhaps I really need to try someday. HAHA fresh salmon, I’m waiting for you.

    xin: it’s because of the teriyaki sauce so the salmon’s a bit brownish.

    ck lam: They also have salmon fillets if you don’t want to buy the whole fish which could weigh around 3kg each.

    hyperX: just remember to go try raw salmon that is fresh, or else you’d get a really bad experience!
