#22: Make 10 New Recipes

Marinated Pan-Fried Salmon

I think this is the first recipe I have made from Jenn Cuisine. I love her blog, but sometimes her recipes seem a little out of my league. But, I kept looking at this recipe for weeks and finally decided to try it.

  • 1/4 cup tamari soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sweet chile sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil (I used extra virgin olive oil)
In a bowl whisk together the marinade ingredients, then pour into a sealable plastic bag. Add salmon fillets to bag. Squeeze out all air and seal the bag. Push the marinade around to cover both fillets.

Let marinate for 20 minutes.

Heat skillet on medium-high heat. Add vegetable oil to pan. Cook fillets a couple of minutes on each side, until done to your satisfaction. (I like mine cooked all the way through, some like a little pink in the middle). The marinade will caramelize will cooking.

Serve on top of a bed of lettuce, or accompany with your favorite veggies.

Verdict: This was delicious. I don't cook with sesame that often, so when the Hubs walked in the door and smelled the marinade he says what is that weird smell? I was thinking, great. Waste of my time. But, it wasn't. We both loved this recipe. In fact, I am making this again tonight and I will be doing probably 6 fillets. So definitely getting added to the list of recipes.

Hope you enjoy this recipe too.

Side note: I also cooked some rice to go with this and it was great.

Other blog plug... I started a new blog about going green. I hope you all will check it out. Journey to Green.

  1. Oh great, I'm so glad you tried it! Ha yeah sesame oil can have a unique aroma if you aren't used to it, but I really enjoy the flavor it gives, especially in marinades. Happy cooking and I'm glad you enjoyed it!
