I’m sure it can’t just be my family now can it, that doesn’t get enough oily fish into it’s weekly diet?
I love salmon, but one of my daughter’s wants it ‘pimped’ up before she’ll eat it.
This Bill Granger recipe is great. It’s sweet, savoury and delicious.
Can salmon be moreish? I think so.
And it’s great for a quick mid-week meal, when there’s not much time. That’s something I’m increasingly finding now that I’m working more hours. (One of the perks of being self-employed, if there’s no staff…..)
Bill Granger’s Caramel Salmon
Serves 4. A tad optimistic I feel.
1 tbsp. veg. oil
800g skin-on salmon, cut into cubes
1 red onion, sliced (I used white onion as that’s all I had at home)
3 cloves garlic, sliced
3 tbsp dark soy sauce
115g brown sugar
3 tbsp fish sauce (I used mirin here as we don’t like fish sauce!)
1 tbsp. lime juice.
1. Fry the cubes of salmon in the oil quickly, until golden brown. Remove from pan.
2. Fry the onion and garlic for 3 minutes, then add the sugar, fish sauce (if using) and soy.
3. Return salmon to the pan and cook for a further minute or until the sauce is thick and syrupy. add lime juice.
4. Serve with steamed rice and lime wedges.

Would I make it again? Hell, yeah!
