On Boxing Day

The day after Christmas, known as Boxing Day, was supposed to be back to work. Somehow, I didn't. It is also a day to open presents? Somehow, I don't have presents to open. :p

I happened to be watching a show on Channel 5 this morning at 11.30am, known as "Bills Food II". I just found out that he is an Australian chef and restaurateur, Bill Granger. He happened to be cooking "Caramel Salmon" and I thought it was pretty easy and looks very good too. So I decided to give it a try in the evening and cook it for dinner! It turned out be really good! This is the recipe from my memory and my trial & error. Hope you can try it too!

Caramel Salmon, from "Bills Food II Show" today (with some modifications)

500g Salmon Fillets, cut into 3"x1"x2" approx
1 medium Red Onion (I used Salad onion), cut into strips
5 cloves garlic, chopped
6 tbsp Brown Sugar
8 tbsp Fish Sauce
1 1/2 tbsp Soy Sauce
4 small lime, or 2 thai lime

Some salt
Some Olive Oil (to pan fry)
Some spring onions & parsley & chilli strips to garnish

1. Marinate Salmon fillets with some salt.
2. Pour some olive oil to the pan and pan-fried the salmon fillets for about 1 min on each side. (#1)
3. Remove the salmon fillets from the pan.
4. Fried garlic, followed by onions till fragrant.
5. Add soy sauce, fish sauce and sugar to the pan. Mix well til sugar caramelised.
6. Squeeze the lime into the pan, and mix well.
7. Put the salmon fillets back to the pan and heat them up. Don't stir and mix. (#2)
8. Cooked for about a minute or so, then remove the salmon fillets and place them on a plate.
9. Pour out the sauce onto the salmon fillets, and garnish them with spring onions, parsley and chilli strips. (#3)

This dish goes well with rice, and serves six. The recipes may be adjusted to suit individual tastes, whether sweeter or more sour. My family loved this dish very much!
