This Chinese Glazed Salmon recipe is found in Katie Chin’s Everyday Chinese Cookbook: 101 Delicious Recipes from My Mother’s Kitchen, which will be available to buy on 26th April 2016 on Amazon. This book pays homage to Katie’s late mother, the legendary chef and restaurateur, Leeann Chin. Sharing a collection of beloved family recipes, Katie weaves a compelling tale of Leeann’s life and her pioneering role in popularizing Chinese cuisine in America. From Chinese classics like Kung Pao Chicken and Shu Mai, to Chin’s signature Firecracker Shrimp, recipes defy the intimidation factor often linked to Asian cuisine.
The book is divided into 10 different sections. It is easy to navigate and find recipes throughout the book. There are so many delicious recipes to choose from soup to seafood.
After looking through the book, I decided to cook this Chinese Glazed Salmon recipe. I like to buy salmon as it is widely available in UK supermarkets and butchers. It is a great source of omega-3 and it is one of our favourite types of fish to eat.
This recipe didn’t take long to cook and it is absolutely gorgeous. Both my children ate their portions and asked for more. It has been a while since they ate so much fish.
- 85g brown sugar
- 80ml soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
- 750g salmon fillet
- Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl and pour half of the marinade over the salmon and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
- Place the remaining marinade in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 14 minutes, or until the marinade forms a glaze.
- Broil salmon until cooked through, about 8 minutes.
- Remove salmon and brush the glaze over. Serve with rice.
We all enjoyed this dish and would definitely cook it again. The ingredients are widely available in supermarkets or Chinese shops.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and learning more about the author’s personal life and her mother. It comes with clear instructions and are easy to follow. If you are looking for recipes for everyday Chinese dishes, this is a great book to start with.
