How to cook "with visual instructions" "using familiar ingredients from your local grocery stores" healthy, traditional and delicious Japanese dishes!!

Easy Salmon Escabeche (Gluten-Free)


Today I introduce you to Marinated pan-fried Salmon. My mother used to cook this a lot for our dinner. I think it is a similar method as Escabeche but a lot easier! The pan-fried salmon has a great crunchy texture outside and is very tender inside. The salmon and some sautéed vegetables are marinated in a mainly vinegar and soy sauce mixture. It is a non-fatty, non-greasy, very nutritious and incredibly delicious dish!

My recipe is very easy.

Marinate sautéed vegetables and pan-fried salmon in the sauce.

In fact the traditional recipe is a little bit more complicated than my recipe. However, my recipe (which is NOT traditional) tastes awesome! You can barely tell which one is the traditional dish and which one is not. I used onion, carrot and cucumber, but you can also use paprika, mushrooms, eggplant, broccoli and so on.
You can store this dish for 4 days in the refrigerator. It is great for lunch boxes because you don’t need to heat it up. We can have it as cold dish. This dish is great when you want to add a slightly vinegar taste dish in your meals.

    • Thank you!! It is not traditional cooking method (we have to deep-fry fish, simmer the sauce with Dashi stock and let it cool before marinating) but is easy, quick and delicious. I use corn starch for pan-frying salmon, which brings great texture, crunchy and tender 🙂

  5. I’m going to download the PDF so my son can make this for us. I don’t do well cooking fish (and I don’t really like eating it) but my husband really likes it! I’ll let you know when we make it but I think even I may enjoy this fish!
