Asian Salmon Fillets

“This is a recipe I concocted after a visit to Hawaii,” writes Susan Coryell. The Huddleston, Virginia reader shares her flaky salmon in a flavorful sauce that would be perfect for a rushed-for-time weeknight or special event alike.

    Made this a few times already. You really need the oyster sauce.

    Best salmon we ever had. We had to substitute fish sauce for the clam sauce.

    We totally enjoyed this recipe! When I make it again, though, I will use half the amount of the reduced sodium soy, because we don't consume a lot of sodium and by the time you thickened the sauce, it was a bit too salty for us. But the recipe was wonderful and a keeper! Btw, I didn't have oyster sauce so I omitted it. Definitely worth trying!

    What can you use in place of oyster sauce?

    Wonderful recipe! I didn't have any oyster sauce and made it without and it was still delicious.
