Salmon with Asian Basil Sauce
Here is what you will need:
2 salmon fillets, skin on or off your choice
1 TBS vegetable oil, may need a bit more when cooking
1 TBS grated garlic
1 TBS grated ginger (fresh)
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 to 3 TBS brown sugar, depends on how sweet you like it
splash of rice vinegar
dash of Asian hot sauce (optional)
small bunch of basil
Put all the ingredients except the salmon, salt and oil in a glass bowl and mix well, letting the sugar dissolve.
Keep a little extra basil out for garnish.
Heat the oil in a pan, season the salmon with some salt, not too much because the soy sauce is salty.
Cook the salmon about 4 minutes then flip.
Pour the sauce over the salmon and continue cooking.
When the salmon is cooked, remove from pan and let the sauce thicken.
Taste the sauce and make any adjustments.
I served it with some garlic green beans and topped with a little fresh basil. Enjoy
