Salmon with Sweet-and-Sour Pan Sauce

Sautéing the salmon in a little oil creates a beautiful crust. This sweet-and-sour sauce is thin but flavorful--perfect with salmon.

Cooking Light MARCH 2004

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over low heat.

Combine broth and next 5 ingredients (broth through garlic).

Increase heat to medium-high, and heat 3 minutes.

While pan heats, sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper. Add fillets to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove fillets from pan.

Drain fat from pan, and discard fat. Add broth mixture to pan, scraping to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil; cook 30 seconds. Remove from heat. Serve sauce over fish.
