While I will eat pretty much any type of fish, salmon is my hands down favorite. Its so healthy and has a natural richness that is just fabulous. I have a really simple recipe that is honestly the nicest way I've ever had salmon. Nothing I've had in restaurants is as tasty as this combination. Its also really easy :)
Soy and Ginger Salmon (by Jenn)
2 salmon fillets or salmon steaks
good thumb sized piece of ginger
1/4 cup soy sauce
Get everything together.
That is the biggest bottle of soy sauce I could find. And it cost €2. I miss Costco :'(
You can use more or less ginger to suit your taste. I used this chunk.
Grate the ginger over the salmon. I prefer to grate instead of mince as grating releases more of the yummy ginger-y juices.
Top it with the soy sauce
Flip the fillets so they skin side up. If you have time, leave the salmon in the marinade overnight. If not, pop it in a 200C oven for 20 minutes or until its cooked to your liking. Flip the fish over with about 5 minutes left to lightly crisp the top of the salmon.
It is really delicious. Served warm is fantastic, but its nearly nicer cold with a salad. Either way, this is a really wonderful way to enjoy salmon.
