Because red salmon is one of the healthiest fish, I am trying to make one meal of this every few weeks.

In this recipe I have tried something a little bit different and served it with a Vietnamese coleslaw.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients
For the salmon
2 pieces of salmon, skin on - about 150 g each
35 g caster sugar
1 tbsp low salt soy sauce
1 clove garlic, sliced
1 tbsp ginger, cut finely
1 large green chilli, thinly slice (or red if you like it hotter)
1 star anise
1 tbsp sesame seeds
Mint, for garnish (optional)

For the coleslaw
200 g Wombok or Chinese cabbage
1 carrot
bunch radish
25 ml lime juice
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp oil
1 tsp sesame oil

Method
For the salmon
Combine the sugar and 2 tbsp of water in a frying pan. Cook over a medium heat without stirring and when the sugar has dissolved, cook for about 7 minutes or until it turns a caramel colour.

Working quickly, and working over the sink, add another 2 tbsp water and the soy sauce - be careful as the mixture will spit.

Add the ginger, garlic, chilli, and star anise.

Simmer again for about 3 minutes.

Add the fish skin down.

Bring the caramel mixture back to the boil and simmer, turning the fish once. Cook until the fish is JUST cooked through, not well done - this will take about 5 - 8 minutes depending on the thickness of each piece.

For the coleslaw
Chop the carrot, cabbage and radish into fine matchsticks, but do not use an electrical chopper as it grates too finely (I did and the coleslaw was too watery!).

Mix the lime juice, sugar, and two different oils in a bowl.

Pour this over the coleslaw just before serving, and when served, sprinkle the sesame seeds (which can be toasted), on top.

Serve the salmon on a bed of the Vietnamese coleslaw, and decorate with mint leaves (optional).
