Asian Salmon Fillets Recipe

“This is a recipe I concocted after a visit to Hawaii,” writes Susan Coryell. The Huddleston, Virginia reader shares her flaky salmon in a flavorful sauce that would be perfect for a rushed-for-time weeknight or special event alike.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 4 salmon fillets (5 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce


  • 1. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook onions and garlic in oil for 1 minute. Add ginger; cook 1 minute longer. Transfer to a small bowl; set aside.
  • 2. Spritz fillets with cooking spray; add to skillet. Cook for 4-6 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.
  • 3. Combine the wine or broth, soy sauce, oyster sauce and reserved onion mixture; pour over salmon. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove fillets. Cook sauce 1-2 minutes longer or until thickened; serve over salmon. Yield: 4 servings.

"Best salmon we ever had. We had to substitute fish sauce for the clam sauce."

"We totally enjoyed this recipe! When I make it again, though, I will use half the amount of the reduced sodium soy, because we don't consume a lot of sodium and by the time you thickened the sauce, it was a bit too salty for us. But the recipe was wonderful and a keeper! Btw, I didn't have oyster sauce so I omitted it. Definitely worth trying!"
