Braised Asian Salmon

In the summer, we eat it grilled. In the winter, baked braised or seared. Year-round we eat it raw or smoked. We? Are a salmon family. All six of us love it, and eat it on a regular basis... For that reason I have developed a multitude of different ways to eat it, here's one of our favorites...


2 T sesame oil
2 small shallots
3 cloves of garlic
4 boneless salmon fillets
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup Trader Joe's ginger beer


In large saute pan heat sesame oil (should just coat bottom of the pan) on medium-high. When warm add shallots and garlic. Heat until shallots are translucent. Add salmon. Sear each side of the salmon fillets. Turn heat to low, add soy sauce and ginger beer. Simmer for 10 minutes.
