Ingredients
For the Marinade
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup rapadura sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup olive or coconut oil
For the Entree
  • 1 serving (approximately 4 oz) of salmon per person (preferably with kin on one side)
  • 1 kg of asparagus, trimmed (will serve 6)
  • Melted butter or one of the oils if you prefer
  • 2 tablespoons shallots, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, lightly toasted
  • 1 lemon
  • Sea salt
  • Baby tomatoes
Method
  1. Season salmon fillets with lemon juice, pepper and salt
  2. Make the marinade. In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, rapadura sugar, water, and preferred oil until dissolved. Place fish in a large resealable plastic bag with the marinade, seal, and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Preheat grill grate or skillet for medium heat. Lightly oil or butter.
  4. Remove salmon from marinade, discard marinade. Place salmon on the preheated surface, cook salmon skin side down firstly, for 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  5. Place oil and asparagus in a glass baking dish and toss so that the asparagus is completely coated with oil. Bake at 200 c for about 8 minutes, shaking the dish every 2 minutes or so.
  6. Sprinkle on the shallots and sesame seeds and bake, with one or two shakes for 1 minute more. Transfer to heated serving bowl and squeeze on lemon juice. Season to taste.
  7. Toss baby tomatoes on a grill or skillet after coating with oil, cook to preferred tenderness.
