An Easy Salmon Recipe That Kids Will Eat
I say asian style baked salmon, because although it tastes delicious and has asian influence, I can not by any means claim it to be traditional recipe.
I like this recipe because: Well quite simply I like it because I like salmon. I also like it because my kids will eat it (for some reason I haven't managed to get them to eat plain salmon yet, a work in progress). I also like it because it is really simple. The other week, I banged it in the oven on a timer, went to a playdate with the kids in the afternoon and came home to perfectly cooked salmon... brilliant.
Its' probably a bit high in salt and sugar, but for me the benefits of my kids eating and enjoying omega 3 rich salmon out weigh these negatives.
- Salmon fillets (as many as needed to feed your family)
For each salmon fillet

- 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
- 1 tablespoon liquid honey (or creamed honey warmed)
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce

- Place salmon in a baking/roasting dish
- Spread the fillet with mustard
- Combine oyster sauce and honey and pour over salmon
- Add the soy sauce and wine to the baking dish, around the salmon rather than poured over. (The wine can definitely be omitted if desired)
