Quick Crispy Skin Salmon Thai Style

Quick Crispy Skin Salmon Thai Style

Posted 2017-06-07 by Naomi follow
Restaurant quality, on the table in 20 minutes, healthy and delicious.

My technique gives crispy skin, fall apart flesh and works every time. The easy Thai sauce is zesty with lemon and chilli and is complemented by the fresh herbs. Enjoy, knowing that you have made this yourself at a fraction of the cost of a restaurant.

  • Preheat a fry pan on high.
  • Combine the sauce ingredients and whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • Drizzle olive oil on the skin of the salmon portions. Rub salt into the skin.
  • Place the salmon in the frying pan, skin side down.
  • Immediately spoon 2 tsp of sauce onto the salmon, add 2 tbsp of combined herbs and two slices of lemon (cut to size). Cover and cook on medium for 10 minutes with the lid on.

  • Combine the salad ingredients, remaining sauce, herbs and toss to combine.
  • Use a spatula to gently lift the salmon off the fry pan to check that the skin is crisp to your liking, taking care not to break the skin. Fry for an addition minute on high, if required.
  • Use the spatula to lift the salmon, flip and plate with the salmon skin side up and lemon and herb plate side down. Add 1 - 2 tsp of sauce if desired, but eat straight away or the skin may go soggy!

  • Tips
  • Cook for 8 minutes for medium cooked salmon.
  • Adjust the spiciness for taste and comfort. Use fewer chillies and remove the seeds for a less spicy sauce.
  • Substitute lemons with limes.
  • The flavours in this main work well as a three course meal with the [Linkhttp://recipeyum.com.au/healthy-spring-rolls-and-dipping-sauce/ healthy spring rolls] for entree followed by the [Linkhttp://recipeyum.com.au/pineapple-and-coconut-pina-colada-sorbet-with-shredded-coconut/ Pineapple And Coconut PiƱa Colada Sorbet] for dessert.
