Recipe for Garlic Ginger Basil Salmon with a YouTube Video

I made this Garlic Ginger Basil Salmon tonight… yum! It was good! The recipe comes from the YouTube video below.

I used:

1/2 pound Salmon
2 Tablespoons Rice Vinegar
3 Cloves Garlic
1 to 2 Tablespoons Ginger
1/4 to 1/3 cup Brown Sugar ( I eyed it – it depends if you like a more or less sweet sauce)
3/4 to 1 cup Water
5 Basil Leaves finely chopped
(In the video they added Chile sauce to the sauce mixture.
I left it out since my son doesn’t like anything too spicy.)

Finely chop the garlic and ginger and then mix them with the brown sugar, rice vinegar and water.

Heat pan on medium low. Add vegetable oil to coat. Add salmon. Cook salmon half way through – about 4minutes. Then flip and cook the rest of the way through – about another 4 minutes.

Add the sauce and chopped basil. Heat till the sauce is warm and serve.

You can watch how to make this recipe in the video below from Food Wishes

I think I might try this recipe out with tofu next.

PS My son and I loved this recipe. My husband, who is a salty person, thought the sauce was a little too sweet (though he doesn’t eat fish – so he only tasted the sauce. I must say the sauce is superb with the salmon!)

PSS Tip on the video for buying salmon: make sure to ask for a center piece and specifically not the tail.
