“New Easy & Nutritious Dinner Dish”

Instant idea to come out with the dish. I had a big portion of Salmon fillet leftover from my son’s cooking as he took only a slice out of the whole fillet for his porridge dinner.

Was pondering a question of cooking our all-time favorite Teriyaki Salmon or not, I had decided to do a new 3-in-1 dish this time. Yea, I always associate Salmon fish with Japanese cuisine naturally, I would not skip in this creation, too. Haha. Use miso paste as the base of the gravy to the dish, I think any dish creation would just never go wrong. :)

Serves 4
Ingredients
200 grams of Salmon fillet, thickly sliced
150 grams of French beans, trimmed and cut into shorter length
2 large eggs, beaten and seasoned with light soy sauce and white pepper
1 tablespoon of miso paste, mixed well with 3 tablespoons of water
1 teaspoon of chicken granule or powder
Pinch of salt and white pepper
3 tablespoon of cooking oil

Method
1) Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over high fire. Place sliced Salmon and pan sear till both sides browned and fragrant. Dish up and set aside.

2) Same pan, heat another tablespoon of oil over medium fire. Add French beans and stir fry a little. Without further stirring, let it sauté for few minutes, until beans are cooked and light browned. You may observe some wrinkles on the beans when they are well sautéed.

3) Drizzle salt, chicken granule and white pepper. Stir fry to combine. Sprinkle some water using bare fingers to moist the beans as well as creating the sizzling effect.

4) Scope the beans to a side of the pan, using a spatula. Add the last tablespoon of oil to another empty side of the pan. You may also want to shift the oil side up a little closer to the stove fire. Pour beaten eggs into the pan to fry like how you cook an omelette. When down side is cooked, need not to flip over, simply use spatula to cut the semi-cooked omelette into big pieces and return French bean to the centre of the pan. Mix omelette and beans together and drizzle miso liquid. Stir fry a little to combine.

5) Now do the dishing up, without pouring out the sauce in it yet. Just transfer the beans and eggs into a serving plate. Return and top the sliced Salmon. Then, scope the sauce from pan and drizzle onto the dish. Serve with steamed rice or plain porridge.

A portion of my nutritious dinner dish counts about 167kcal.

Alright, remind you that it can be your well-balanced 1-dish meal though. You have vegetables, egg and fish here. See, it is relatively low in calories, too. Happy.

Tips: Miso paste comes in a small tub or packet. Some even individually packed into small packets (price are lower than tub package, too), for more convenience. These are available in major supermarkets (look out at the Japanese food department or dry seasoning cells). Daiso Japanese stores sell it, too.
