Pan Fried Salmon with Shitake Mushroom Sauce


Our Malaysia 13th General Election has just concluded...nothing much to say here...just was not in the mood to blog for the past week..life still carries on and blogging continues...slowly. Thank you very much to those who took part in our Bake Along 2nd Anniversary Cupcake theme last week and thanks for all of your wishes. You can have a look at all of the submissions here.

The selected ingredient for this month's Little Thumbs Up event is Mushroom, hosted by my dear friend, Joyce from Kitchen Flavours. Cook or bake anything using mushroom as one of the ingredients and link it to the above event. What i am posting today is a simple yet tasty dish and doesnt take long to prepare. If you  have mirin and sake in the kitchen, why not give this a try. The soy sauce that i used here is the chinese type of light soy sauce and i find it just a little salty, you can choose to reduce a little soy sauce or perhaps add a little sugar at the end or use Japanese soy sauce which is less salty. Happy cooking!


Recipe ( from the book Meet Masa in the Kitchen )
1 piece salmon fillet
1 garlic, sliced
1 fresh shitake mushroom , sliced
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp mirin
2 tbsp cooking sake
pepper

1. Clean and pat dry salmon. Pan fry salmon till skin is crispy and cooked. Set aside on a plate.
2. Fry sliced garlics till golden brown and add in the mushrooms, stir till cooked. Add in the soy sauce, mirin and sake and simmer for a while. Pour over the cooked salmon. Serve immediately.

  2. I heard the election was a disappointment to many but life still goes on. 官子两个口. You can't win that.

    Been a while since I last had salmon. Frying them is a nightmare for me as I detest the smell it lingers. But yours definitely looking good.

    Let's see whether I am up to it for Little Thumb Up.

    PS. Thanks for dropping my post and leaving such nice comments. Have a great week ahead. Glad to know you manage to get the aluminum-free baking powder. Do you find a difference in the taste of your bakes?
