It’s so ironic that I was still mentioning about the hot humid weather in my last blog post and suddenly, it started to pour these few days ! Hahahah… All the more I should say more right ? But opps, sorry to those who love the sun.
Anyway, I seem to be on a shopaholic drip recently and my mind keep running through a list of shopping wants, in particular kitchen appliances. The list is like never ending. But I guess I should take it slowly this time and to avoid more white elephants, I decided I should try to explore and utilize more of what I have now, rather than purchasing stuffs that I probably would used only once in a while.
So for now, I decided to make full use of the oven in cooking now as well, instead of just baking and I realised somehow the oven can do alot of wonders in our food menu. And most importantly, they are quick and fuss free, less cleaning up and healthier too because less or rather no oil are being used ! Presenting to you the Baked Salmon with Homestyle Teriyaki Sauce !
This teriyaki sauce is not the typical Japanese kind as no jap condiments are used. I was figuring how to achieve a teriyaki sauce that brings on a similar taste and texture but yet, I need to do it without the jap condiments as I knew if I were to get them, I will probably used it once or twice and the balance would just go to waste till it expired. I was pleasantly surprised when the end results were quite satisfactory and all I took was some mix and match of the existing condiments I had in the kitchen. Therefore, I named this as quite a home-styled teriyaki sauce and not really the authentic Japanese kind, but can lar ! It still tastes good to me lor… Hahaha. I believe all home made recipes come from a basis of trial and errors, and somehow some kind of “agar-ration” too.
This goes on well with a bowl of white steamed rice ! Am definitely going to cook this once more since that’s still a piece of salmon fillet hanging in my freezer…
- 1 piece of salmon fillet
- few pieces of ginger strips
- 1 tbsp of light soya sauce
- 1 1/2 tbsp of sugar
- 1 tsp of garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp of ginger powder
- 1 tsp of corn flour
- Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl and pour over the salmon fillet, rubbing it all over with the sauce. Place ginger strips on top and marinade for 30 minutes or more (I leave the marination overnight though.)
- Transfer the ginger strips to a baking sheet and place the marinated salmon on top. Drizzle the remaining sauce over the salmon.
- Baked in a preheated oven at 190 degrees C for 20-25 minutes or until cooked whereby the salmon meat becomes flaky when pricked with a fork or chopstick.
- If the sauce is not enough, you can top it up by mixing the same marinade ingredients together and heat it up slightly in a microwave or oven and drizzle over the salmon when it is ready.
