sesame sambal salmon
I always keep If's versatile sambal in the refrigerator. It's so useful and it significantly simplifies the cooking process. I use it for stir frying, dipping sauce, all sorts of marinade and sometimes even for pizza. Everybody who tasted this sambal (including me) couldn't help trying to make it by themselves. It is very simple to make and so yummy!
ingredients ( 2 servings)
2 salmon fillets (0.5 lb each, skinless)
salt and black pepper to season
1 Tbsp mayo (preferably Japanese kind)
1Tbsp If's versatile sambal (or any chilli sauce you have)
3 Tbsp Panko
1 tsp black sesame seeds
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp sesame oil
Preheat oven to 450F. Season salmon generously with salt and pepper. Put the salmon on a baking pan. Set it aside. In a small bowl, mix mayo and sambal together. Set it aside. In another small bowl, mix panko with black sesame seeds and sesame oil. Spread sambal mayo on salmon fillets and sprinkle panko mixture on top. Bake for 10 minutes at 450 F, then turn on the broiler. Broil until the salmon fillets become golden brown and crispy. (about 3-5 minutes) Serve with cucumber salad with sesame dressing or moo saengchae.
