Salmon is arguable the favourite fish of Hongkongers. Go to any sushi restaurant you can see how much salmon sushi is being ordered. Salmon steak is also widely available in supermarket or even wet market.
Easy to cook, boneless, looks premium and tastes good, we think these are the reasons why Hongkongers love salmon. This time we are going to use our newly unboxed Avocado 24cm saute pan to sear salmon.
脆煎三文魚 Crispy Seared Salmon
Seared salmon should be among the easiest ways of cooking a premium looking Westerners’ dish. This time we served it with asparagus and mashed pumpkin. Also a wedge of lemon to give a touch of freshness
It’s fairly easy to damage the skin so normally we used cooking paper to prevent the skin from sticking onto the pan. However we deliberately not used any cooking paper this time to test the non-stickiness performance of our Avocado pan
Hear how crispy the skin was!
Ingredients include salmon, pumpkin and asparagus. Some butter and cooking cream will also be used
We first steam the pumpkin for 20mins to soften it
Mash the pumpkin
Add around 100ml of cooking cream, some butter, a touch of salt and pepper
The we can leave it aside and reheat it before plating
Marinade the salmon with some salt and pepper for 10mins
Saute the asparagus and put them under the salmon during plating
It comes to the salmon now. Remember to whip dry the salmon before searing to make sure it’s dry enough
Sear the skin side first. Keep searing it on medium heat for 2 mins and avoid moving it. After that flip it around and sear for another 2 mins. Done!
The skin was perfectly crispy! Thanks to the superior non-stickiness of the Avocado pan, it’s easy to make seared salmon in high quality
The 24cm saute pan is perfect for searing fish and the 28cm wok is good for making Cantonese style stir-fried dishes. Check out on our store where you can see more introduction and comments on the series!
