Thai salmon

This is one of my husband’s favorite salmon preparations.  It is easy to fix and a good weeknight dish.

Grilled marinated salmon 

  • 1 TB cumin
  • 1 TB black peppercorns
  • 2 TB coriander seeds
  • ¼ cup minced fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 1 tsp ground dried toasted Thai chilis
  • ¼ cup Golden Mountain soy sauce (or low sodium soy sauce)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • ¼ cup palm or brown sugar
  • salmon

Preheat oven to 450.  Toast cumin, peppercorns and coriander seeds over medium heat in a dry saucepan until aromatic (4 – 5 minutes), tossing frequently.  Grind spices in a mortar and pestle.  Add ginger, garlic and dried chilis and grind.

Put paste in a glass bowl and stir in sugar, soy sauce, lime juice.  Taste marinade – you should taste a blend of salt (soy sauce), spice (pepper, cumin, ginger), heat (chilis), sweet (sugar) and sour (lime).  Adjust to your taste as needed.  Cover fish with marinade and marinate 30 -40 minutes in a ceramic baking dish.  Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until just done.  Serve with rice.
