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)
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.
See? It is really easy.
If you want to get your own fresh Norwegian Salmon you can go to Fresh Yields (click here for the location map) where it is being sold at RM40 per kg and for the sauce and other Japanese ingredients, you can try Meijiya which is located here.
