Caramelized salmon in a reduction of soy sauce

Salmon, that delicious blue fish with few bones, which delights children and adults. It has properties and nutrients that are difficult to find in other food. It is a natural source of Omega-3 and proteins and several investigations assure that it provides important benefits to heart’s health, with only two pieces per week.

It is one of the types of fish that I eat more lately, on the one hand because it is easy to cook and versatile and on the other hand because of its texture and great flavor. I usually eat it just lightly fried, but in this case I have experimented with a special sauce, which ends up being awesome for the eyes and for the taste. This sauce also combines well with other types of fish, such as trout or tuna.

Shoulders to the wheel!

Caramelized salmon in a reduction of soy sauce

Ingredients for 2 people

2 salmon steaks
2 small onions
1/2 glass of white wine
1/4 glass of soy sauce
1/2 glass of brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon of all-purpose flour
A trickle of  extra virgin olive oil
Mint leaves or soy sprouts for decoration (optional)

Chop onions in small cubes and brown them in a skillet with a sprinkle of olive oil.

Once they start to be transparent, pour in this order white wine, sugar and soy sauce. Stir it for a short while.

Let this sauce reduce to low heat for about 25 minutes, until you see it gets consumed.

With a strainer on top of the skillet, spoon flour and sift it so that there are no lumps.

Stir it and keep heating it for a few more minutes until you see it gets thicker. Take it out from heat as soon as it has jelly texture.

In another skillet, put a few drops of oil and fry lightly the salmon, approximately 1 minute and a half each side (depending on their thickness) so that they are juicy.

Serve the salmon in two plates and cover it with the sauce right before eating. Decorate with mint or soy sprouts.
