    Default Pan-Seared Salmon with Tangy Thai Sauce

    Pan-Seared Salmon with Tangy Thai Sauce
    2-4 salmon fillets (if making more, double the marinade/sauce) - if frozen, thaw in a bowl of cool water
    1-3 tbs canola oil (or other vegetable oil) for frying
    MARINADE/SAUCE:
    1/2 cup rice vinegar (or substitute white vinegar or apple cider vinegar)
    1/4 cup honey
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 fresh red chili, minced or finely sliced, OR substitute 1/2 to 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
    1 tbs fish sauce (available in tall bottles at Asian/Chinese food stores)
    1 tbs soy sauce
    1 tsp dark soy sauce (or substitute 1 extra tbs regular soy sauce)
    1 tbs minced lemongrass
    GARNISH:
    handful of fresh coriander or flat-leaf parsley
    To make the marinade/sauce, place all marinade ingredients together in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir as you bring the sauce to a boil.
    Reduce heat to medium and allow to simmer for 10 minutes, uncovered. The sauce will gradually thicken (the smell of the vinegar is rather pungent as it cooks). When marinade/sauce has thickened, place in the refrigerator or freezer to cool for 5 minutes.
    Place salmon fillets in a flat-bottomed pan or casserole dish (so that fillets aren't piled on top of each other). When the sauce/marinade has cooled (warm instead of hot), spoon 2 tbs over each fillet, 1 per side, slathering it over the flesh (reserve the remaining sauce for later). Marinate in the refrigerator 10 minutes or up to 24 hours.

    Place a frying pan or wok on medium-high heat, allowing it to warm up for at least 1 minute before adding the oil (this will help prevent the fish from sticking).
    When pan is hot, add 1-2 tbs oil, lifting and turning the pan to distribute evenly. Now place fillets in the pan.
    Allow salmon to fry at least 2 minutes undisturbed before turning. If you turn the fish too soon, it will stick. Instead, allow it to "sear", and it will come freely away from the bottom of the pan.
    Fry the fish 3-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fish. Salmon is done when inner flesh is no longer transparent. For faster cooking, cover fish while it's frying.
    To serve: arrange on a serving platter or plates. Spoon a little of the sauce over each fillet. Place the rest in a side dish and serve as a dipping sauce (it can be re-heated or served at room temperature).
    Serve with Thai jasmine rice, potatoes, or salad. Enjoy!
