Another great Green Tea recipe.
This is a simple, low cost meal for two, and would pair perfectly with some Green Tea Steamed Rice.
Green Tea Poached Salmon
4 heaping teaspoons loose green tea ( could use 4 bags if needed )
2 cups boiling water
4 minced garlic cloves
2 tablespoons grated ginger
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 teaspoons water
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 half-pound salmon steaks
1. Steep tea in 2 cups hot water for 4 minutes. Remove all tea leaves.
2. Add garlic, ginger, and sesame oil to tea and set aside.
3. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add salmon to pan and sear for 1–2 minutes, on one side. Turn salmon over and add tea mixture to skillet. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and poach for 7–10 minutes, until salmon flakes easily.
Serve with Braised Spinach or Green Tea Steamed Rice.
