Bored with just searing the salmon the other day, I decided to make a honey soy salmon out of it – just the name of the sauce gets me excited. Sweet and savoury, it was sure to be a hit with the kids, especially.
Since I was planning on feeding this to the kids, I avoided adding any ginger juice to the sauce because they don’t like the taste, but you can do so if you like. Otherwise, this recipe is really quite easy to remember because I call it the easy as 1-2-3 recipe for honey soy salmon – 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 2 tablespoons honey, 3 tablespoons water. Perfect, eh? Of course, you can tweak the proportions any way you like coz to be honest, I didn’t measure this properly as I eye-balled the measurements this time round.
Alright, so on to the recipe!
- about 400g salmon fillet, cut into smaller slabs
- 1-2 teaspoons dried oregano (optional)
- olive oil for searing
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons water
- cornflour slurry for thickening the sauce, if necessary
- Rinse the salmon fillet and pat dry with a paper towel.
- Sprinkle dried oregano on the fillet (optional).
- Heat some olive oil in a non-stick pan and sear the salmon on both sides till cooked - you probably won't take more than 6-8 minutes for this, depending on the thickness of the fillet.
- While cooking the salmon, bring the sauce in a small saucepan to a boil and thicken with cornflour slurry to desired consistency.
- Plate the cooked salmon then drizzle the sauce over it.
