Pandan Salmon 香兰鲑鱼



Instead of making the normal pandan chicken (spiced chicken wrapped with screwpine leaves), this time I tried something different, pandan salmon which is rich in Omega 3.

Instead of the usual deep frying method. This time I just bake it, less oily and healthy.
Anyway, before bake, I still apply a layer of cooking oil on top of pandan leaf.

This idea came when I browsing thru a menu of a famous Thai restaurant.
And my family like this salmon version too.

Sonia, we eat salmon very often coz William keeps telling me that he is getting old & he likes simple fish dish so I normally buy 2 salmon fillet & bake, then serve with mayo, hehe. Your pandan salmon is a very clever dish that has brought the flavour to the next level!

Mich PieceofCake said...

That's a great idea! I prefer salmon to chicken.
