Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
