Soy glazed New Zealand King Salmon with pak choi, ginger & garlic chips


Serves: 4 portions 


Ginger & Garlic Chips

  • Ginger & garlic chips can be easily achieved by stretching plastic food wrap over a standard dinner plate, ensuring it is tight & taut. If this is done correctly then the plastic wrap will be sitting up off the plate showing a few millimeters gap between the plate & the plastic wrap.
  • Lightly spray the plastic with cooking/baking spray.
  • Place all the thinly sliced ginger wafers separately onto the sprayed plastic covered plate & then microwave on 100% power for 1 minute. Allow a few minutes for cooling before you repeat the process with another minute in the microwave. Continue this process until you can see that the ginger is crisping up & becoming dried. The finished product will become crisp & dried like a potato chip, lightly season & store in an airtight container until required.
  • Repeat the process with the wafer thin garlic to achieve the same results.

To Complete the Dish

  • In a small mixing bowl add the sesame seeds and half of the ginger & garlic chips & crush them into the same bowl creating a seasoning to sprinkle over the cooked salmon.
  • Choose a bamboo steamer with a lid (you could also use metal steamer) that will fit the 4 salmon portions in, also choose a corresponding pot filled with water & brought to the boil.
  • In the steamer, place a piece of non stick parchment paper & then place the salmon portions on paper. Add the pak choi into the steamer as well, allowing the salmon & pak choi to cook to very similar timeframes.
  • Place the steamer over the boiling water & cover with the lid. Steam/cooking times may vary according to the salmon's thickness however it would be approximately 3-4 minutes.
  • As soon as the salmon & pak choi are cooked, remove the steamer from the pot & remove the lid, quickly brush the salmon portions with the sweet soy sauce. Sprinkle the sesame/ginger/garlic seasoning onto the salmon & then finish by sprinkling the ginger & garlic chips over the portions of salmon.
  • Serve immediately in the bamboo steamer or quickly plate & serve.

Optional Accompaniments/Condiments - steamed rice & soy sauce.
