myFresha-licious: Salmon Belly in Oyster Sauce

Salmon Belly in Oyster Sauce

So I have decided to cook salmon belly tonight for supper.  I let my husband choose betweein Paksiw na Salmon belly or salmon belly in oyster sauce and he chose the latter.

The recipe below is already revised based on the comments of my husband:  “It’s too sweet. don’t put sugar next time.”   I only added a tablespoonful of white sugar and I also find it too sweet to my liking so I will just take out the sugar next time.

Here’s my revised recipe:


Salmon Belly – 250 g.

oyster sauce – 4 tbsp.

Light soy sauce – 2 tbsp

grapeseed oil – 2 tsp

sesame oil – 1 tsp

Ground pepper

Garlic, crushed and chopped – 6 cloves

Vegetable water (Where I half-boiled the xiao bai cai (Chinese cabbage that looks like pechay)

Cooking procedure:

1) Mix the ground pepper, oyster sauce & light soysauce and marinade the salmon belly in it for an hour.

2) Heat the oils in a sauce pan and saute’ the garlic until it changes in color (do not toast it!)

3) Take out the salmon belly from it’s marinate and saute’ it along with the garlic.

4) Add the marinate and the vegetable water. Cook salmon for 12-15 minutes

Serve with white rice and the half-boiled xiao bai cai on the side. This recipe is good for 3 servings.
