Baked Salmon ala Pobre

When I cooked salmon ala pobre (see the recipe here ) the first time, my husband loved it so much that he requested that I cook the same more often.  What I did with the salmon that time was to pan fry the fish fillets. Salmon is already an oily fish and frying it would make it even  more greasy and unhealthy.  So I thought of baking it this time  and it worked.

I also experimented on using lime instead of lemon juice which I did in my first ala pobre recipe.  My husband and I prefer using lime over lemon juice most of the time (depending on the dish) since the first is more sour and its flavor blends better with soy sauce as compared to using lemon. 

I highly recommend this dish for those who want a healthier food on their dining table. Oh by the way, I used UFC soy sauce (Filipino brand) instead of kikkoman and datu puti (Filipino brand) because its sodium content is more than 30% lower compared to the two.


Ingredients :

Salmon Fillet - 8 to 10pcs
Salmon Skin
Garlic, minced - 5 cloves
Onions, sliced into rings - 2 large or more
Scallion, cut into 1 inch long - 2 stalks or more
Brown Sugar - 1 tsp
Olive oil for greasing

Marinade Sauce:

Soy Sauce (UFC brand) - 1/2 c
Freshly squeezed lime juice from 2 medium fruits
Black pepper powder 

Cooking Procedure :

1. Mix Marinade and marinade the fish fillets including skin in it for at least 4 hours.  Drain the fillet but reserve the marinade for the sauce.
2. Heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius
3. Grease your baking dish (you can use glass, metal, or ceramic pans/dishes) with the olive oil. 
4. Arrange the fish fillets and skin on the dish and place it in the oven.  Bake for at least 15 minutes or until the skins are crisp and the fillets are easy to flake

While baking the fish ...
5. In a pan, heat a small amount of oil and saute garlic and small onions in it.
6.  Pour half or all the marinade  on the garlic and onions, add the sugar and a dash of black pepper powder and simmer for 2 minutes.  
7.  Add the onion rings and simmer for another minute.
8.  Pour the sauce on the baked fish fillets and skin and garnish it with the scallion.

Serve it with your favorite rice.
