Sugar and Spice Salmon

Sugar and Spice Salmon

Since we had our office event at Sachie’s Kitchen I started to follow some of Sachie Nomura recipes as most of them are easy and simple to prepare plus they are delicious. One of her first recipes I tried apart from the one they demo at their cooking school is this Sugar and Spice Salmon.

Sugar and Spice Salmon is a dish of lightly coated flash fried salmon served with quickly pickled capsicums on a sweet sour savoury sauce made out of sake, vinegar, soy sauce and sugar. It’s a very delicate dish with fresh tasting notes, perfect with a bowl of rice served on a hot summer day. I did not mind changing the recipe as it is already perfect as it is so the one below is the original recipe from Sachie, try it trust me you will love it.
