Table for Two - Asian-Style Baked Salmon with Scallion Rice

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This is an easy dinner to make and while it is simple to prepare, it's fancy enough to serve to guests. The salmon is a riff on a recipe I found, here, on Rasa Malaysia and the rice is one that I have shared with you before. The two dishes pair beautifully and produces a flavorful meal that is pleasing to both the palate and the eyes. There are no special insights to be shared here. This is a straightforward recipe, and if you follow the directions below, you'll have no trouble making this dish. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare, but do be forewarned, there is some wait time required to marinate the salmon. I serve the salmon atop rice in shallow bowls along with stir-fried bok choy or snow peas as an accompanying vegetable. This is a delicious dish that I know you will enjoy. Here is how it is made.

Asian-Style Baked Salmon

1 pound salmon, cut into 2-3 pieces
1 (2-inch) piece ginger, peeled and chopped
5 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1-1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon sesame oil
3 heavy dashes white pepper
Pinch of salt
1 cup uncooked basmati rice
1/2 cup sliced scallion, white and tender green

1) Place salmon in 9 x 9-inch non-reactive pan skin side down. Combine chopped ginger and garlic and pat into upper surface of fish. Mix remainder of ingredients in a small bowl. Slowly pour over surface to coat salmon. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for two hours, or allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
2) To prepare scallion rice: Cook 1 cup basmati rice per package directions. Stir in scallions. Keep warm.
3) When ready to proceed, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray it with nonstick cooking spray.
4) Bake salmon in center of oven for 15 minutes. Serve over scallion rice while still warm. Yield: 2 to 3 servings.

Mary, Thanks for the recipe for the salmon. We're trying to eat more fish at home and we're a little less confident cooking seafood than other meats. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Sounds like a fine way to adorn a piece of salmon Mary.

I bake salmon very often and I like your Asian-style way of baking, paired with fragrant scallion rice.

Yum! This would be my perfect lunch! Salmon is a great fish to have often, but I don't know so many recipes which include it. Would you suggest any?
