This is a fantastic summer dish as it is best eaten cold. On the weekend I like to cook several meals to be eaten during the week and this recipe is one of our favorites.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1-1/4 pounds wild caught salmon
  • juice & zest of 2 limes
  • 1/4 cup basil flavored olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (unfiltered) sake
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon crushed ginger
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons plum sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 red jalapeno, seeded & minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice powder

Recipe Steps:

  • Place salmon in a deep dish.
  • In a bowl, whisk together lime juice, basil olive oil, saki, sesame oil, seafood seasoning and ginger.
  • Pour over fish and allow to marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes, turning once or twice.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the hoisin sauce, plum sauce, soy sauce, honey, jalapeno, basil and Chinese 5 spice powder. Simmer (stirring frequently) for 5 minutes.
  • Heat a grill pan (skillet with ridges) to medium high.
  • Remove salmon from marinade (discarding liquid) and grill for 4-6 minutes per side.
  • Transfer to a clean dish and brush both sides liberally with sauce.
  • When fish reaches room temperature, cover and chill for 6 hours.
  • Serve cold with a summer salad of grains and vegetables
