Asian Sticky Salmon
This salmon recipe is great for feeding a crowd and it's easy fast and the sweet taste of the sauce really perks up the salmon.
219-175 per serving
1 whole side salmon
for the marinade
2 tbsp each soy sauce, honey and rice wine vinegar
4 tbsp hoisin sauce
2 star anise
2 tsp each Thai 7 spice and Thai fish sauce
2 garlic cloves, crushed
chopped coriander, finely chopped red chilli and lime wedges
Start by mixing all the marinade ingredients together.
Place the salmon on a large piece of foil, bring the edges up to form a boat around it, pour over the marinade and scrunch the edges together.
Leave in the fridge to marinate for at least 6 hours, or overnight if you have time.
To cook, heat the oven to 425 F Remove the salmon from the marinade and place on a very well oiled double piece of foil, in a roasting tin. Roast in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, depending on whether you want it opaque in the middle or completely cooked. Meanwhile, transfer the marinade to a pan, bring to the boil and simmer for a few minutes until thick and syrupy. Pour over the salmon for the last 5 minutes of cooking, then when sticky and slightly caramelised, transfer to a serving platter and scatter with coriander and chilli. Serve this simply delicious salmon recipe with lime wedges and red chillies on top
