Sweet & Sour Salmon

Bought extra Salmon fillet so made some for lunch today for hb & myself. Thought of trying a different approach so tried it with a Sweet & Sour sauce and it complimented the salmon quite well. This is a simple & quick recipe if you want to whip up a Sweet & Sour sauce dish. You can use this basic sauce and alternate the meat. Our green dish was Quick Stir Fry Celery with Mushrooms.

400g salmon steak
Salt & pepper to taste
Sesame oil & Chinese wine
Some plain flour or corn flour
6 tablespoons of tomato ketchup
2 tomatoes (cut in quarters)
Sugar & white vinegar to taste
1 clove garlic chopped
Ginger (thinly sliced)
1 tbsp cornflour dissoved in half cup of water
- Wash salmon and rub some salt & pepper to it. Cut salmon to bite size and drizzle some sesame oil & Chinese wine and mix lightly. Set aside to marinate for 30 mins.
- Put the flour into a shallow bowl, coat the salmon pcs and shake off excess.
- Heat oil in pan, once oil is hot (test by inserting a chopstick into oil, once you see bubbling round the chopstick. It means oil is hot enough. Reduce to medium low and slide salmon pc into pan.
- Turn salmon when the edges are golden brown. Remove once both sides are golden and place in some kitchen towels to soak up excecss oil.
