For the love of food, I urge you to try this at home! As you know I love Asian food and this sauce for the salmon totally nails the whole idea how a sauce should taste in the Orient. It is a very simple yet glamorous dish suitable for special occasions.

My recipe in Estonian may be found here.

2 salmon medallions (ca 700 g, but you may subsititute with some other fish or other pieces of salmon, e.g steak, whole fillet)

20 g of scallions (about two stalks), chopped diagonally into long strips

2 tbsp of minced fresh ginger

4 garlics, chopped roughly

4 shallots or other small onions, sliced

for the sauce:

2 tsp honey

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp oyster sauce

3 tbsp white wine (may be substituted with rice vinegar)

Additionally you will need foil and some cooking oil (olive or grapeseed etc)

Set the oven to 200 C. Blend all the ingredients for the sauce. Taste to make sure the saltiness is suitable for you, if too little add more soy sauce. Prepare four pieces of foil that are big enough to cover the two salmon medallions. Pour some cooking oil on one and then put the salmon medallion on it. Sprinkle with half of the prepared garlics, shallots, ginger and scallions and pour half of the sauce on top. Cover with another piece of foil and seal firmly the foil pieces together. Do the same with the other salmon medallion. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

May be served with cooked rice.
