Alkaline Diet Recipe #99: Marinated Salmon Fillet Asian Style

For the last alkaline recipe going out to all of you this year I thought to include a delicious marinated salmon recipe, which can be used as a healthier alternative for your Christmas meal!

Salmon is my favourite type of fish and this recipe has got an abundance of different flavours given by the Asian herbs and spices used as a marinade. Salmon is a particularly good “oily” type of fish to use, as it is high in protein, Vitamin D and most importantly the Omega-3 fatty acids. These are essential for good health and should be included as much as possible on the acid/alkaline diet.

I hope you enjoy this delicious and flavoursome recipe, which is perfect if you want to make your Christmas meal more alkaline and this little bit more special at the same time!

Please note: If you want to use this recipe on a particular day you need to prepare this dish two days before, as the marinade needs to soak into the fish.

Mix the coriander with the lime peel, ginger, lemongrass, pepper, chilli, salt, oyster and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos.

Lay the salmon fillet skin side down into a form which the salmon fits in and spread the marinade evenly over the salmon filet. Cover the salmon with cling film and let the marinade soak in for two days in the fridge.

Roast the sesame seeds in a frying pan without any fat until they turn golden. Remove the whole marinade from the salmon fillet after two days and sprinkle the sesame seeds onto the salmon.

To serve cut the salmon into thin slices.

Merry Christmas!

    Okay, so no baking, it’s like ceviche?

    confused. Is this cooked in the marinade? like a ceviche or do you bake it in the oven after it marinates for 2 days.

      Hi Susan,
      Yes, this is cooked in the marinade. You would need 2 days of marinade so that it can soak in the fish.
