Salmon in ginger-butter sauce

March 31, 2018

This is a great recipe if you want to minimize time in the kitchen.
All you need is time to marinate the salmon filets in this gorgeous sauce, then broil them, served with rice or a simple green salad.

Serves 2 (or can be doubled easily)

2 salmon fillets (1/2lb each)
3 tbsp dry sherry
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp finely minced fresh ginger
2 tbsp chopped fresh Italian parsley
2 tbsp butter
Freshly ground black pepper and salt

Advance preparation

Combine the sherry, soy sauce and sesame oil. Rub the fillets with this marinade.
Rub the ginger across the top of the fillets then sprinkle on the parsley. Dot the butter evenly across the surface and add black pepper and a sprinkling of salt to taste.
(This can be done several hours in advance)

Last minute cooking

To broil, preheat the oven to 550 F then turn the oven to Broil.
Place the salmon about 4 inches below the direct heat and cook without turning until the fish turns a lighter pink and just becomes firm to the touch. It will begin to flake when prodded with a fork, about 6 to 8 minutes.

When cooked, transfer the fillets to heated dinner plates and serve with a lovely salad, lemon wedge or some simple boiled rice
