Sweet Chilli Salmon
« on: November 09, 2011, 05:39:21 am »

This recipe was converted from Woolworth's catalogue.The recipe is Margaret Fultons.
I have steamed the fish, in the sauce, in the Varoma. I halved the recipe to make 2 serves. The original recipe was for 4.

1 Tablespoon of oil.
1/2 red onion
1 clove garlic.
1 dessertspoon of green ginger.
1/4 cup of water
40g. sweet chilli sauce
1 tablespoon of Fish sauce
1 dessertspoon of Apple or White wine vinegar
2 x 150g. Salmon fillets

Drop peeled onion, garlic and ginger on to blades and process until cut.
Scrape down and add oil. Cook 5 mins./100 o/ speed 2
Add liquids and cook 5 mins/100o/speed 2.

Place dish into Varoma, (I place 2 skewers under dish to allow steam to circulate)
Tip in sauce and place fish, skin side up in dish, and steam until done to liking.

Serve with rice and salad.

Cookie, I don't do many main. Meals but this is certainly one I will be doing again.  It took about 15 mins. To steam.

Is that salmon a fillet or a portion cut Chookie?  Perfect sized dish for the varoma.

Judy,  don't think that it matters.  Margaret Fulton calls for fillets.  I pick the bits that are triangular shape as they have less bones. Select what will fit into your dish.  It is really yummy and I will buy more salmon or trout when i shop this week so we can have it again.

I made this for the challenge.  My salmon fillet was only 112 g but it took longer to cook this way than when I've steamed salmon before on the base of the varoma dish or in the tray.  That's not a complaint as I really enjoyed doing it this way and having a nice sauce to go with it. I started off with 7 minutes then added more time until it was cooked to my liking which took 12 minutes (I would normally only steam a piece this size for 8 minutes).  I don't like my salmon overcooked, I find it too dry but this was cooked to perfection in this time.

I halved the recipe, added 600g boiling water to the TM bowl for the steaming part of the recipe and turned the salmon at the 7 minute mark. 

Thanks Chookie, a lovely recipe.

To accompany the salmon, I reheated your Pumpkin Spiced Rice (which I'd made earlier) in a shallow dish in the varoma tray at the same time as cooking the salmon.  This ensured the dish came together at the same time.

Very clever Judy.   I like it when a sauce is created with the dish.

CC, glad you liked it.  Good idea to add boiling water.
