Teppanyaki Salmon

Cheaper it has been said a meal at home, I would rather agree as well. Then again, depending on what we opt for outside, for those who are not fussy, a basic meal may cost around RM5.00. But I suppose aside with money matters, definitely home cooked meals are significantly healthier and okay, affordable. For my family, mostly we eat in but there are days I need a break from cooking. So, a meal can call for at hawker stalls and a treat once a while is Japanese food. Between the offered Japanese varieties ranging from sashimi, tempura or teppanyaki etc. etc, salmon teppanyaki is definitely a favourite (Grilled Salmon). From the various types I have tasted, I made my version of spicy teppanyaki salmon and teamed it with a salad made with yellow and red capsicum, zucchini, cabbage and romaine lettuce. Here is the recipe guys!!

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 chilli - sliced thinly
*** Mix these ingredients together
Marinate salmon with all the ingredients except oil for at least 1 hour.
In heated oil, seal both sides of salmon (only the fish) till nice and brown.
Then pour the marination in.
Simmer and cook until the sauce is thicken.
In the serving plate, place salmon and pour the sauce atop the rice and serve with the salad.
