The original recipe was sesame-salmon with pak choi. For our disappointment we did not find pak choi in the shops! So of course here comes improvisation! :) We used fennel bulb and broccoli instead. The result was quite successful, so here is the quick recipe. The ingredients are meant for 4 people, but we were good to have it for 2 :) it was that good!
1. Raw fresh Norwegian salmon - 4 pieces of about 100 gr. each
Of course when thinking of salmon it has to be Norwegian salmon! It is a bit expensive, especially when fresh, but it is well worth the price! It gets very very very soft and tender when cooked and doesn't dry out like a frozen would.
2. Fresh Fennel bulbs - 2 pieces
3. Fresh organic Broccoli - 1 piece
4. Spring onions - 1 bundle
5. Fresh organic Ginger - 2,5 cm
6. Sesame seeds, organic - 2 tbsp
7. Sesame oil, organic - 1 tsp
8. Sunflower oil - 1 tbsp
9. Soy sauce, organic - 1 tbsp
10. Salt and black pepper
11. Lime or lemon, organic, to serve
* 1 tsp (tea spoon) - 5ml
* 1 tbsp (table spoon) - 15ml
Cooking:1. In one bowl the soy sauce, ginger, and sesame oil get mixed.
2. Then the mix is spread over the raw salmon and sesame seeds are added.
3. Then the pan is heated and the salmon is fried in both sides for about 4 min each. It can be baked too for about 20 min. Which actually will be the better option...but I was eager to try it fried.
4. Then the fennel, broccoli and spring onions are chopped in small pieces. Then a pan get heated and the vegetables are cooked with the sesame oil, black pepper and salt for 2-3 min until crispy.
