Salmon and asparagus stir fry

Salmon and asparagus stir fry

One of my favourite fish is salmon. I love the taste and texture. On top of that it’s a very healthy fish that’s high in omega-3. If you like very high quality salmon, the best is Wild Alaskan Salmon which is much more costly. Over here in UK, there are a lot of farm reared salmon and they cost a lot cheaper. I eat both types.

Salmon is very delicious cooked in any way, whether deep fried, pan fried, stir fried, poached, smoked, baked or grilled. The most important is not to over cook it. It is very tender and delicious when just cooked but turns tough when over cooked. The time to cook depends very much on the thickness of the salmon.

This salmon recipe is another addition to my favourite. Since my family likes asparagus, I decided to cook salmon with asparagus. Asparagus is a very delicious vegetable, tender and has it’s natural sweetness and it goes very well with salmon. It is very delicious too with prawns as in Asparagus With King Prawns.

This recipe is again very simple. I love stir fry because it’s very easy and quick. All you need is a good wok or a thick based frying pan. I can’t cook without both.

Ingredients A
400g salmon (cut into pieces)
1T light soya sauce
2T chili sauce
1T corn flour
350g asparagus

Fry the salmon

Fry the salmon

Marinade the salmon with the soya sauce, chili sauce and corn flour for about 30 minutes. Heat up some oil in a frying pan. Add the salmon pieces and fry until just cooked. Dish up.

Fry the asparagus

Fry the asparagus

Heat up some fried shallot oil in a frying pan and add the asparagus. Keep frying the asparagus until just tender.

Mix the salmon and asparagus

Mix the salmon and asparagus

Pour back the salmon and add the seasoning in Ingredients B. Mix well and dish up. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste. The asparagus has a natural sweetness of its own so you may just want to keep the seasoning light and simple.

Ingredients B (seasoning)
1T fish sauce
1T chili sauce
fried shallot oil

A combination I love but have never do it in a stir fry b4, I’ll have to try this soon!

Divina  on March 17th, 2010

The stir-fry looks scrumptious, juicy and so flavorful. I could actually eat this everyday. :)

the lacquer spoon  on March 17th, 2010

It’s nearly 19:00 here. I’ve already cooked croquettes for my supper, but your post inspires me to cook for tomorrow! Love both the taste and colour: coral pink and spring green. Thanks always :)

tigerfish  on March 17th, 2010

Spring is the season for asparagus…nice change to salmon stir fry instead of prawns.

Sushma Mallya  on March 17th, 2010

stir fry looks very the combo

Mary  on March 17th, 2010

@Christine@Christine’s Recipes - Now….it’s either you fly over here and I’ll cook for you or you have to take out your wok…haha. Better come here cos of your finger :D

@pegasuslegend - Thanks very much, Claudia! :D This is a healthy dish that I will cook often.

@deana@lostpastremembered - Thanks very much for visiting and comment, Deana! Have fun cooking :D

@3hungrytummies - Have fun cooking :D Hope you like it.

@Divina - I would, too. The only problem is sometimes I can’t get the big asparagus. Maybe have to go to other supermarkets. Hope luck is on my side today when I go marketting :D

@the lacquer spoon - Thanks very much! You are going to have a lovely dinner tomorrow :D

@tigerfish - Ooops…I don’t even know that asparagus is seasonal. Looks ike I can always get it from the supermarket here. I guess they are imported. Spring is here so I hope to enjoy more fresh, local asparagus :D

@Sushma Mallya - Thanks very much, Sushma! :D

The Little Teochew  on March 17th, 2010

Nice! Healthy meal and better still, quick! You cook such homely, delicious food, Mary. :)

kristy  on March 17th, 2010

This is truly mouthwatering, just perfect with rice. Tambah one more dish…mixed herbs omelette! haha…

Angie@Angie's Recipes  on March 17th, 2010

There’s still no sight of asparagus here….the salmon dish looks so good with plenty of green asparagus.

Simply Life  on March 17th, 2010

Catherine  on March 17th, 2010

This looks really tasty and healthy, the salmon chunks are very appetising!

Tangled Noodle  on March 17th, 2010

Love this stir-fry! Salmon is definitely our favorite fish to have at home. I usually bake it simply with just a sprinkle of lemon, salt and pepper, but one of my husband’s favorite is with honey and fresh basil. As for asparagus, I usually just steam it although I have a very nice recipe for asparagus tart that’s great for brunch!

zurin  on March 17th, 2010

nevr thought of stir frying salmon..whata fantastic idea!!! it looks soo delicious!!

COLARGOL  on March 17th, 2010

very pretty plate, the combination of salmon and asparagus should be very good, he’ll have the opportunity to try
Good day
Sorry for my English, I use an automatic translator

Mary  on March 17th, 2010

@The Little Teochew - I’m trying so hard to make my children eat healthy food. Sometimes I wonder whether I try too hard….haha :D Quite like a battle between home food and outside food!

@kristy - Thanks very much for the mixed herb omelette, Kristy! :D Sounds very delicious. I must try.

@Angie@Angie’s Recipes - Oh….then you must come over :P There are quite a lot here.

@Simply Life - Haha…..caught your thoughts :D

@Catherine - Thanks very much, Catherine! :D

@Tangled Noodle - Thanks very much for sharing the way you cook salmon and asparagus! :D I would love to try them. I tried to search for your asparagus tart on your blog but couldn’t find it.

@zurin - Thanks very much, Zurin! :D
