Sautéed Salmon

Serves - 2
Hands-on time - 15 minutes
Total time - 25 minutes (plus 30 minutes to 1 hour marinating time)


2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 tbsp Wuju soy sauce

2 tsp olive oil 

1 tbsp chopped fresh dill

Juice 1/2 lemon

1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper

2 4-oz boneless salmon fillets, skin-on or skinless


In a large baking dish or re-sealable plastic bag, combine garlic, soy sauce, 2 tsp oil, dill, lemon juice and pepper. Add salmon and coat with mixture.

Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes to 1 hour; if salmon is not fully immersed in mixture, turn halfway through.

Add olive oil to pan and heat on medium-heat. Add salmon, discarding marinade. Cook, turning once, for 6 to 8 minutes, until flakes easily when tested with a fork. (NOTE: Reduce heat to medium if salmon starts to darken quickly.)

You can serve it with soba noodles on the side + kimchi and water kress salad.
