The Eberwhite woods are in front of us. When the weather is nice, I sometimes cross through the woods for Lil A's school which is on the other side. The woods is home to a pair of great horned owls. We hears the owls in the fall when Lil A had his soccer practice outside.
This spring the owls have babies - two little baby owls. They are high up in the tree and we could see them with a binocular. We have taken several trips to get a glimpse of the babies. In the process we also met some western painted turtles who live by the swamp, and even saw a snake.
The babies are now learning how to fly. Here is a story that appeared in the local media about it.
Coming back to the recipe. Lil A loves salmon and snow peas and peppers too. So I combined all of them together in a recipe. It was delicious. Except for the kids, I had to separate them and serve it. I served it with some plain rice, but you could even serve it with noodles.
I bought a bottle of teriyaki sauce and a pack of panko crumbs. I also added a small tomato puree in the sauce and the sweet and sour sauce was delicious.
Here is the recipe:
3-4 6 oz salmon fillets cut into small cubes
salt and pepper to taste
1 pack panko bread for coating
3-4 tbspoon oil for shallow frying
1/4 tspoon black sesame seeds
5-6 small peppers or 1 big one - cut into small pieces
8-10 snow peas cut into small pieces
2 tbspoon teriyaki sauce
2-3 garlic cloves - sliced
1 small tomato puree
1/2 cup water
2 tbspoon oil
salt to taste
cilantro for garnishing
salt to taste
Add salt and pepper on the salmon cubes and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then roll it in panko crumbs and shallow fry 2-3 minutes on each side.
Drain and set aside.
Heat oil in a saucepan and temper it with black sesame seeds. Add the sliced garlic and saute for a minute.
Then add the peppers and snow peas and cook for 2-3 minutes with closed lid on medium heat.
Then add the teriyaki sauce, tomato puree and salt and mix well. Then add water, salmon pieces and let it cook for another 3-4 minutes with closed lid on medium heat.
Take it off the heat, garnish with cilantro and serve.
