Asian Glazed Grilled Salmon with Broccoli Slaw

Slowly we're eating more and more fish. Not often, but way more than never. I saw this glaze over at Karen's Back Road Journal and it looked so good, I had to try. Together with the broccoli slaw it was one fantastic dinner. We really enjoyed it. Miss Picky had chicken with the glaze.

The fish stuck a little to the grill so next time I think I will take a cue from Judy at a Tasty Thought and get one of those grill pans for the grill.








Asian Glazed Grilled Salmon
adapted by There's Always Thyme to Cook
1 teaspoon grated ginger
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons peanut oil (I used olive oil)
2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce.
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 clove garlic, minced

Heat the sesame oil and the garlic over medium heat and sauté for about a minute but do not let the garlic burn. Add the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for two to three minutes to combine flavors. Remove the glaze from the heat and set aside.
Place the salmon skin side down on a hot grill, for about five minutes or more depending on the thickness of the fish. Use a fish spatula to carefully turn the fish to cook the other side, another 5 minutes or more, depending how you like your fish cooked. Remove skin, drizzle with glaze and serve with Broccoli Slaw and lime wedges.

Dressing:
5 tablespoons bottled Thai peanut sauce
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon peanut oil in a bowl
salt and pepper, to taste 

Whisk ingredients well.

1 bag broccoli slaw
1/4 cup chopped peanuts (I used salted cocktail peanuts)
cilantro (optional)
green onions, sliced (optional)

Empty a bag of broccoli slaw into a bowl. Add most of the peanuts, reserve some for garnish. Pour the dressing over the slaw and mix well. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes for the flavors to mix. Remove from fridge and toss with the reserved chopped peanuts. Garnish with chopped cilantro and sliced green onions, if desired.

  1. Could this be the salmon recipe I've been searching for? We eat a fair amount of salmon and I'm always looking for a new way to serve it - this one seems to hit all my favourites.
    I don't think we can buy broccoli slaw here. I'll have to google it.

  12. I saw that post too and thought it looked delicious! We always use the flat side of a large, cast iron, griddle to make salmon on the grill. It works perfectly!

  13. Beautiful salmon dish, Carol. I love that glaze! The broccoli slaw is what's holding my interest though. My recipe is not a Thai version and I really like your recipe; never have added peanuts, either. I think my old recipe needs some updating!
    Happy St. Paddy's Day, dear friend!

    The brocoli slaw especially appeals to me, though I'm not sure just how spicy it is...I don't tolerate heat like I used to :(

  22. We don't eat anywhere enough fish. This recipe looks delicious.

    I don't think we have bags of prepared Broccoli Slaw but it would be good with stir fried green vegies or salad too.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Those both sound terrific and perfect together!

  34. This looks like wonderful flavor combinations, Carol! I have to clean my grill and start cooking outdoors again if the weather stays nice. Prepared broccoli slaw is a real time saver, and the dressing sounds divine!

  42. This looks sooo good. A nice way to get in more broccoli

    ReplyDelete
  43. What a lovely meal. It's a different and interesting use of broccoli as well.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am in love with your broccoli slaw - I love the pad thai twist.

    Plus I think your salmon looks delicious. Unfortunately the husband hates salmon (and fish in general) but I do make him eat fish once a week so I feel your pain as far as trying to incorporate more fish into your weekly diet.

  45. What a beautiful glaze!! Love grilled salmon and that looks absolutely delicious!!! Looks like it would be something from the menu of a nice restaurant!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I adore this recipe! We make a orange marmalade version but I absolutely lOVE the idea of substituting our jelly sweetness with hoisin and peanut sauce. This will surely become a family favorite!
