Broiled Salmon with Lemongrass and Ginger Recipe

Serves/Makes: 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 single-serve salmon steak (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 stalk lemongrass
  • 12 basil leaves (I recommend Holy basil or lemon basil or Thai basil)
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 2 - 3 slices ginger
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
How to cook Broiled Salmon with Lemongrass and Ginger:
  • Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  • Take only the light-colored portion of the lemongrass. Peel off the fibrous outer layers. Cut the soft portion into small pieces.
  • Grind together the lemongrass, ginger, garlic, basil leaves and salt. Use a mortar and pestle, a blender or a food processor - it’s up to you.
  • After grinding, the mixture should be a coarse paste. It can be a fine paste, if you like. Just process longer. Stir in the olive oil.
  • Spread the mixture on both sides of the salmon.
  • Broil the salmon for 8 to 10 minutes (The actual broiling time may vary depending on the size of the steak. DO NOT overcook.).
  • Serve the Broiled Salmon with Lemongrass and Ginger immediately with a salad, whatever your favorite is (I highly recommend mango salad, see the recipe below).
