Salmon with Shredded Ginger

I think many of you must have tried this dish before. Initially pan-fry a fish to me is a scary task, I'm afraid of the boiling oil scalding my hands :) But it is totally a different story when I have...the Happycall pan! The Happycall pan is one of my saviour in the kitchen, I started to do more pan-fry on fish as no worries of oil splash around!

Salmon, a fish high with omega 3 fatty acids is not just good for development in kids brain but good for us as adult too. The omega 3 fatty acids in it help slow down cognitive problems such as Alzheimer’s disease and age-related cognitive decline. (refer to http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/lowcarbsuperfoods/a/salmonbenefits.htm) Haha...I think I urgently need Salmon :D

The original recipe from Mum's Favourite Dishes Cookbook (妈妈暧心菜), I forgot to coat the Salmon with cornstarch, and the ginger burnt a bit...Oops! Anyway, Gabriel loves this fish!

Recipe from Mum's Favourite Dishes Cookbook (妈妈暧心菜), p 85

1 piece salmon, season with 1 tbsp salt, wash and drain
5 slices of ginger, shredded or cut into thin
2 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp cooking oil

1. Heat up Happycall pan with 2 tbsp cooking oil. Pan-fry both sides of salmon over medium heat till golden brown. Remove salmon from pan.
2. Place shredded ginger in the pan, fry over medium heat for 2 mins or until ginger turned crispy.
3. Add light soy sauce, remove the ginger from heat. Pour the shredded ginger together with light soy sauce over fried salmon. Serve warm.


  1. I love salmon fish very much especially with skin n pan fried till crispy .. Yum!

  2. I love this dish! Sometimes I'll make this too, with the addition of some sugar to the soy sauce in the oil! Yummy! Your son is smart, this is a very flavourful and delicious fish dish!

  6. Tze, is Happycall Pan can only be found in Singapore? So far, I've heard of it for a few times & all from Singaporean friends, hehe! I love your version of the pan-fried salmon with ginger. I'm grilling it tonight.

    1. Jessie, I bought my Happycall Pan from Gmarket, not sure whether Australia has any agents for Happycall pan or not.

  7. 我什么鱼都不爱,只爱三文鱼,这样的煮法,一定很香!

  8. Yes you are so right. I had the same feeling as you till I bought the happy call pan.
