Teppanyaki Salmon

Cooking at home is definitely cheaper than eating out. Then again, it depends on what we eat outside. If you are not fussy, a simple meal can be within RM5.00. Eating out is rather cheap too for one or two person. But for more, home cooked meals are much affordable and significantly healthier.

I try to cook for my family as often as I can but there are days I need a break too. When I don't cook, we normally eat at hawker stalls and once a while at restaurants. Both of us enjoy Japanese food, varying between the sashimi, tempura or teppanyaki sets. Having tasted teppanyaki salmon served with rice a couple of times, I replicated the dish though I don't know how it is made at Japanese restaurants. From the taste, obviously it has to be with Japanese soya sauce. For the rest of the ingredients, I used the common ingredients.

I also made a salad with yellow and red capsicum, zucchini, cabbage and romaine lettuce. Nevertheless, you can opt for your own choice but those suited to be eaten raw. This teppanyaki salmon served with rice and salad is absolutely delicious with the typical Asian flavours.

For the salmon
300g (one medium size piece) salmon - cut into two
1 tbsp Japanese soya sauce
1 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 tsp sugar
2 red chillies - sliced into medium size pieces
Crushed black pepper to taste
2 tbsp oil
(Note: add salt only if needed)

Salad sauce
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp yellow mustard
1 red chili - sliced thinly (optional)
*** Mix these ingredients together
Marinate salmon with all the ingredients except oil for at least 1 hour.
Remove salmon from the marinated ingredients.
Seal both sides in heated oil.
Then pour the marinated ingredients inside.
Simmer and cook until a thick sauce forms.
Place salmon on top of rice, pour sauce over and serve with the salad.
