Baked Salmon with Wasabi
Time sure flies. Feels like just yesterday when I posted about the break. Ameya is turning two months tomorrow. He is smiling, cooing and beginning to move his hands around (not very coordinated yet!).
Slowly but surely we are getting into a routine as we figure out schedules, time to cook, eat, and catch zzzs. While we are enjoying delicious home-cooked meals, thanks to my MIL, I am constantly looking for quick fix recipes that I can make as well.
I stumbled upon this just by going through the jars sitting in the refrigerator. The flavor and sweetness of honey when combined with the sharpness of wasabi brought out a unique taste of the salmon. I cut thin slices of onions and baked the fish with it on top, broiling it for the last 2 minutes for the nice brown look. The salmon turned out great.
Here is the recipe.
2 salmon fillets
1/2 tspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tspoon ginger garlic paste
1 tspoon honey
less than 1/4 tspoon wasabi (adjust it acc to taste)
1/2 onion - thin slices
salt to taste
1 tbspoon olive oil
Preheat the oven to 350 deg C. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and marinate the fish for 30-40 minutes.
Place the onion slices on top of the fillets and cook the fish for about 18-20 minutes and then cook it on broil for a minute or so.
Serve with salad or roasted vegetables.
