Pan-seared Lemongrass Salmon with Lime

Pan-seared Lemongrass Garlic Salmon (9 of 15) For a quick and healthy no-brainer meal simply combine lemongrass, garlic, fish sauce and a dash of lime to make a Southeast Asian-inspired marinade for salmon fillet. I assure you, even the most amateur of cooks can’t possibly go wrong with this.

INGREDIENTS (serves one):

  • 1 salmon fillet (6 ounces)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 lemongrass stalk, finely chopped
  • Juice of half a lime

Film the bottom with a small amount of oil and add the salmon, skin side down. Cook without moving until the skin is nicely seared, roughly 3 minutes. Flip the fillet with tongs and cook for an additional 2-4 minutes, depending on how you like it. Pan-seared Lemongrass Garlic Salmon (12 of 15) 4) Serve immediately with some sides and a lime wedge. Here, I grilled some zucchini coins to complement the dish. Pan-seared Lemongrass Garlic Salmon (1 of 1)
