Teppanyaki Salmon

Eating out has become part and parcel of our Malaysian culture. Malaysians on the whole seem really comfortable with eating out due to a couple of reasons. Some say eating out is cheaper, others don't have a choice due to slogging for money, the rest are not interested in cooking whereas married women these days are more interested in other things or they prefer their kitchen to remain as a showroom. Dang! Whatever, it is non of my business to comment, but obviously home food is healthier and somewhat cheaper according to my calculation. I admit I eat out as well, but generally it is a home meal (Indian Onion Soup, Mutton Curry, Garlic Coriander Rice, Vegetable Raita & Egg Foo Yung). A once a while treat is also Japanese food and between the array of selection offered, that being sashimi, tempura or teppanyaki etc. etc, cooked with tuna (Fried Tuna Cutlet) and salmon, salmon teppanyaki is definitely a favourite. Now, instead of heading back to a Japanese restaurant, I made this Teppanyaki Salmon (Grilled Salmon, Curry Leaves Grilled Salmon & Thai Salmon Noodle Soup). A spicy version indeed, Teppanyaki Salmon paired alongside a salad made with yellow and red capsicum, zucchini, cabbage and romaine lettuce. Here's to 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, sear both sides of salmon (only the fish) till nice and brown.
Then pour the marination in.
Simmer and cook until sauce is thicken.
In a serving plate, place salmon, pour the sauce atop rice and serve with the salad.
