  • 12" cast iron skillet


  • 4 scallions white parts and 4 inches of green tops
  • 6 salmon fillets with skin attached; 6 oz fillets
  • tsp salt
  • tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp Sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic mined; or ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp ginger fresh; grated
  • ½ cup Thai chili sauce sweet
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar firmly packed
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp lime juice freshly squeezed


  • Dice white parts of scallions and put in a bowl for later. Chop green part of scallions on a diagonal and save for later.
  • Rise and dry the salmon fillets. In a 12″ skillet heat the vegetable oil on medium / high heat.
  • Sear the salmon fillets with skin side up for 4 minutes. Turn filets over and cook until salmon is translucent.
  • Take salmon out of the skillet and cover with aluminum foil. Wipe out the skillet and add the sesame oil, garlic, ginger and white part of scallions. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes over medium / high heat. It will start to smell amazing. Add the chili sauce, brown sugar, soy sauce and vinegar. Mix until it becomes the consistency of a syrup.
