Asian-style Pan Seared Salmon Filets with Peanuts and Lime

Because of its known health benefits, I try to serve salmon about once a week. In order to avoid repetition I switch out the method of preparation, and the seasonings.

This happens to be an easy and flavorful way of serving it ~ inspired by a couple of Asian-style recipes I've used in the past. 

I make my own thick teriyaki sauce as it only takes a few minutes to combine the ingredients and reduce them in a saucepan,but if you want to skip that step, use any commercial (thick) teriyaki sauce that you like. 

Look for the thick kind that is brushed on during the last few minutes of cooking, rather than the thin "marinade" type, as the latter won't produce the right results for this method.

You can cook the fish almost any way (broiled, baked, grilled, poached, or pan-seared like I did here) ~ Then just spoon the warm teriyaki sauce over, garnish with chopped, roasted & salted peanuts and serve lime slices or wedges on the side so each diner can add their own.

Incidentally, you can use nearly any fish instead of the salmon ~ it just happens to be one of my favorites.

Easy, peasy! If you would like a printable copy of my "Thin or Thick Homemade Teriyaki Sauce", you can find it HERE on the Once Upon a Plate Recipes site.

Thanks for stopping by today, friends!
