Asian Glazed Salmon
This Asian Glazed Salmon is so quick and easy to make with just a handful of ingredients. It is delicious with medium pan-seared salmon and a honey fish sauce glaze.
- 3 tablespoons fish sauce
- black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon five-spice powder
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 lb salmon fillets skin-on, pat dry (up to 1 1/2-inch thick, about 3.5cm)
- pinch of salt
- cooking oil
To a small saucepan, add 3 tablespoons fish sauce, ½ teaspoon black pepper, scant ¼ teaspoon five-spice powder and 3 tablespoons honey. Turn on the heat to medium and stir to combine the ingredients. Let the sauce simmer for a couple minutes or until it is bubbling all over the surface as in the video. Transfer the sauce to a bowl and set aside.
Heat a pan over medium heat. Sprinkle small pinches of salt and black pepper over the salmon fillets. Once the pan is hot, place the salmon fillets skin-side down and sear for 3-4 minutes, then flip and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes.
Remove all the oil from the pan. You can use a spoon to do this, or temporarily take the salmon out of the pan to discard the oil and then put the salmon back to the pan.
Pour the sauce into the pan and give it about 20 seconds to simmer gently. Place the fillets skin side down and use a spoon to baste them with the sauce for a few more minutes.
Transfer the salmon with all the sauce to serving plates and serve right away.
