- Skinless Salmon steaks or fillets - 1 lb
- Soy sauce - 2 tbsp
- Lime juice - 1 tsp
- Ginger - 2 tsp grated (squeeze the juice and throw the solid parts)
- Garlic powder - 1/2 tsp
- Onion powder - 1/2 tsp
- Crushed pepper - 1/2 tsp
- Dry red chilly flakes - 1/4 tsp
- Brown sugar or honey - 1/2 tsp (optional - I did not use it)
- Vegetable oil - 1 tbsp
Wash and pat dry the salmon steaks and place of a plate.
Mix together the soy sauce, ginger juice,lime juice, garlic,onion,pepper,red chilly flakes and sugar/honey if you are using it.
Taste the marinade for salt, spice and sourness and adjust according to taste.
Pour this on the fish and coat well on both sides, refrigerate for 30 minutes to few hours(up to 3 hours , not longer - Lime juice is acidic and will start cooking the fish)
Heat a pan on high and add the Oil and saute the fish until cooked.
Start with high heat this will help sear the outside and hold the moisture in .
Do not overcook the fish as it will get dry.about 4 minutes per side should be good for a medium thick steak.
Towards the last 1 minute pour the remaining marinade into the hot pan. It will bubble and become a glaze you can pour this over the fish and serve.
