Olive Oil Poached Salmon with Torch Ginger Flower Salad – 油煮三文鱼

A simple recipe that suits even the kitchen noobs, this recipe can be done any day of the week if you’re a fan of salmon.

Poaching the fish in olive oil makes a fabulous choice of cooking as it adds a nice flavor with the aromatics. We used Borges extra virgin olive oil for this recipe, ensuring that there’s enough oil to cover the fish before it went into the oven.

The torch ginger flower salad also makes a wonderful pairing to the taste of salmon. You’ll end up with not only a classy looking dish, but a nutritious meal for your loved ones to enjoy!
