Foodie Goodie | Salmon Rice Bowl.

Lent officially began two days ago (March 5), on Ash Wednesday. For Catholics, this means forty days of penance which includes abstinence from eating meat on Fridays during that period. And with that, my no-meat Friday begins today, with this fish dish that we'll be having for lunch.

Salmon Rice Bowl

Long-grained rice, cooked
4 pcs skinless salmon fillets
2 tablespoons ginger, peeled and minced
3 teaspoons sugar
1 piece red chili, chopped
8 whole garlic cloves
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 kirby cucumbers, cut into thin strips
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
salt and pepper

1. Using a mortar, pound the ginger with the sugar, chili, and chopped garlic to a coarse paste.
2. Transfer the paste to a bowl, stir in with 1/4 cup of water, lime juice, and fish sauce. Add the cucumber.
3. Season the salmon with salt and pepper.
4. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan. Add the salmon to the skillet and cook over moderately high heat until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.
5. Turn the salmon and cook over moderate heat until opaque throughout, about 4 minutes.
6. Mound the rice in bowls.
7. Top with the salmon, garlic cloves and ginger-lime sauce with cucumber strips and serve.

I am actually thinking of fish recipes that I'll prepare for my family. I hope I can cook this recipe of yours too. My husband loves salmon.

Thanks for sharing this. Do you buy the salmon already skinned or are you the one who takes the skin off?

Thank you for sharing this! I will share this with mom, as she does most of the cooking. Hehe. What other fish substitute you can recommend for this recipe? Or hmm.. im thinking we can also use the non-flavoured canned tuna? :)

Great for those living on their own and need easy recipes :)

Czjai said...

Hi May! I can't skin for the life of me, so I use the skinned ones instead. :)

Hi Ruth! Tuna's a good choice. Mackerel, too. :)

This is so easy and healthy and of course delicious. I would like to add kimchi on that bowl of rice too.

I forgot to ask. I don't have fish sauce but I have oyster sauce. Do you know if that would be a good substitute?
