Asian Style Salmon

I suddenly had cravings to eat fish last night at about 10pm so obviously I could not/did not want to whip up some fish and eat them then go to bed so hubby suggested that I take the fish out from the freezer so I can cook them the next day.

I found two salmon that I bought a couple of weeks ago and decided to cook that. I tried cooking salmon on the pan before and it stunk up my whole house thus I don't cook salmon in the pan anymore. I normally cook my salmon on the grill so that it won't stink up the house but hubby was at work when I tried to cook this so I decided to use the oven instead hoping it won't stink up my house.

1-1/2 pounds whole salmon, cleaned
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1-1/2 teaspoons chili sauce
1-1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger root
1/2 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 lime, juiced
1/2 lime, zested
1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1-1/2 green onions, chopped

1. Prepare outdoor grill for high heat.
2. Trim the tail and fins off of the salmon. Make several shallow cuts across the salmon's skin. 3. Place salmon on 3 large, slightly overlapping sheets of aluminum foil.
4. In a bowl, stir together soy sauce, chili sauce, ginger, and garlic. Mix in lime juice, lime zest, and brown sugar. Spoon sauce over the salmon.
5. Fold the foil over the salmon, and crimp the edges to seal.
6. If using hot coals, move them to one side of the grill. Place the fish on the side of the grill that does not have coals directly underneath it, and close the lid. If using a gas grill, place the fish on one side, and turn off the flames directly underneath it; close the lid. Cook for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove to a serving platter, and pour any juices that may have collected in the foil over the top of the fish. Sprinkle with green onions.


7. Prepare as stated but preheat over at 425 degree F. Bake for 20 minutes and take the top foil out so and cook for another 5 minutes. Check fish to make sure the fish is cooked.

Thankfully my house didn't stink even though I cooked it in the oven so I guess I don't need to only cook salmon on the grill. I love to cook the salmon this way because it taste so good and there is no fishy taste/smell. Even my picky hubs approved of this dish and actually eats them.

Wow, this really looks good and and taste it virtually!! We are not really salmon eaters but might have to try it with different kind of fish. I bet if your hubby gives a thumbs up for this, it will be ok with my picky eater hubby too.

I'm not picky with my fish and I eat most fish but I was not too sure about my hubby. I'm assuming since my picky one would eat it you and your hubby could try it too..LOL
