Preparing the Salmon Recipe
Here’s a step by step cooking instructions!
- Step 1. Start off with heating your non-stick pan over high heat. Get to your salmon and have both sides of it sprayed with olive oil. Put the salmon on the pan, skin down and cook it for about 2-3 minutes or until the skin is crisp. Turn the salmon and if you want it medium cooked add a couple of minutes cooking time.
- Step 2. Get a small bowl and start mixing the soy sauce, brown sugar ginger and 1/12 teaspoons of sesame oil. Keep stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
- Step 3. In a sauce pan, bring about 2 cups of water to a boil and cook the chinese broccoli in it for about 30 seconds or until its color turn bright green and it becomes tender crisp. Drain the broccoli.
- Step 4. Now you are ready to plate! Divide the broccoli on your 4 plates and drizzle each plate with the remaining sesame oil. Don’t forget to sprinkle each plate with sesame seeds as well. Top the broccoli with salmon and drizzle it with the soy sauce and ginger mixture. You can also serve this with jasmin rice. Right before serving, drizzle a generous amount of Argan oil on each plate!
