Spicy salmon fillet

Spicy salmon fillet

My family loves to eat salmon. There are so many ways to cook salmon. I love this Spicy Salmon Fillets which goes great with plain rice. Salmon is high in Omega-3 and so is very good for the body. The Japanese uses a lot of raw salmon to make sushi. I have not acquired the taste of raw salmon. I always cook it. This is just one of my favourite recipes. I’ll show you here:

Ingredients A
250g salmon (fillet into slices)
1/2 t sea salt
1t tumeric powder
3T corn starch

Marinade salmon fillet with tumeric powder and salt

Rub the salt and the tumneric powder onto the salmon pieces. Then sprinkle the corn starch on to the slices. Coat both slides. Let it marinade for about 30 minutes. Then pan fry them. Dish it up and make the sauce below.

Ingredients B (sauce)
1T oyster sauce
1t light soya sauce
1T Chinese wine
1T sugar
3T sweet chili sauce
1T hot chili sauce (optional)
1t chicken stock granules
1/2C water
1T corn starch

Mix everything together. When almost ready to eat, pour the sauce into the frying pan, add some fried onion and ginger oil and add in the salmon fillets. Mix well and dish up onto a plate. Serve hot with rice. It’s very delicious. Just don’t over cook the salmon fillets.

This looks wonderful and the flavors are fantastic! I love salmon but rarely cook fish; it is something that just scares me. But you make it look so easy and delicious.

I love salmon too. They are really good for the heart and mind. I love salmon that is medium instead of cooked through. Thanks for another wonderful, simple and easy recipe.

@Jamie - Thanks for sharing. I do wonder why you said that cooking fish scares you. The only time I was scared was when I tried to kill a fish and it won’t die!!!! Have learned a lesson since….just leave it to the fish monger.

@Divina - Thanks for sharing the health benefits of salmon. I’ll have to eat more then…hehe

I adore salmon- it is by far my favorite fish. This sounds like a delicious recipe. I have been known to “freak out” a little when faced with cleaning my own fish, so I would second your advice to leave it to your fish monger!

@tokyoterrace - Thanks for sharing. I’m really thankful that these days I can get beautiful, clean, well-cut fillet. I dislike cleaning the whole fish too cos I end up disliking my hands for the rest of the day because of the fishy smell!!!

Can you have too many salmon recipes? No, I didn’t think so! Looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing it Mary.

raw, cooked it doesnt matter we eat a lot of salmon

Mary  on October 7th, 2009

@So Many Recipes - Thanks for adding. Great to know you have a love for salmon too. I think I love it more these days as I learned more ways to cook it.

@Doggybloggy - Thanks for sharing. I have yet to learn how to eat raw salmon. A friend once offered me raw salmon with some nice savoury filling & I was down in quite bad rashes just minutes after eating. That was frightening. I’m not too sure if I was allergic to raw salmon or to the filling.

Tony Alan  on October 8th, 2009

Wah ! It has the Wah factor ! Fish is my favourite ! How I wish I could taste it ! May be one day I must try to cook it !

Mary  on October 8th, 2009

@Yvonne - Thanks for sharing. I believe your hubster would love this dish if he loves salmon and loves spicy. My family loves it. Hope you try soon.

@Tony Alan - Thanks for comment. Would love to know that you try it. I always believe that man can cook very well. You’ll probably come out with a much nicer dish. Share with me if you do.

Dear Mary

Thanks a lot for your great recipes. I have tried some of your recipes, such as roasted chicken, roasted salmon, scrumptious!!

My family loves to eat salmon as well. This is how I cook the salmon. I marinate the salmon with sea salt. Then I bake it. I just add Colman’s Hollandaise sauce mix (bought in supermarket) to the cooked salmon. It’s a creamy sauce, very nice.

I am going to try your spicy salmon fillets next week. Look great!
Thank you.


Mary  on October 30th, 2009

@Sylvia - Thanks very much for your compliment and for sharing. You sure have a very simple, easy way of cooking salmon, yet sounds very delicious….mmm. Hope you like my recipe here for salmon. Thanks for visiting my blog often and trying out the recipes.

I love to wander around your blog. I found this salmon recipe. We love salmon and I make it at least, once a week. This looks like one I must try but I can’t use the oyster sauce. Anything that I an substitute for it?

Mary  on May 1st, 2010

@Chaya - Thanks very much, Chaya! I think you can substitute the oyster sauce with light soya sauce. It will taste a little different but will still be very delicious. Have fun cooking :D
