Pan Fried Salmon With Sweet & Sour Sauce - Part 2 Of Yesterday's Post!

Here is the salmon recipe from yesterday's post.  I don't really like salmon, but I did enjoy this recipe.  And believe it or not, my daughter had two plates!  Yes, two helpings of salmon!  I was thrilled!


Pan Fried Salmon With Sweet & Sour Sauce

1 T flour
5 tsp cornstarch
Salt & pepper
4 salmon fillets (have also used any white fish)
¼ c veg oil
1 c chicken stock
¼ c rice vinegar
2 T soy sauce
5 tsp sugar
1 ½ T rice wine
3 garlic cloves minced
2 tsp minced ginger
4 green onions julienned
2-4 hot peppers seeded and julienned
Fresh cilantro sprigs

Mix together flour, 3 tsp of the cornstarch, salt and pepper.  Lightly coat salmon.  In skillet over medium-high, fry salmon, skin side down, until crispy, 6 minutes.  Reduce heat to medium, flip, fry 4 minutes.  Meanwhile mix next 5 ingredients until sugar is dissolved.  Transfer salmon to serving plate.  Remove all but 2 T oil from skillet.  Over medium-high, fry garlic and ginger 10-20 seconds,  Add green onions and hot peppers to taste.  Saute 30-60 seconds.  Pour in stock mixture.  Boil until reduced by half.  Stir together 1 T water and remaining cornstarch.  Stir in sauce and return to boil.  Spoon sauce over salmon and garnish with cilantro.

My salmon steaks were far too thick – so after frying them, I put them in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes (I covered them in the sauce first).

So there you have it folks - four great meals all prepped in one night!
