I’ve shared quite a few recipes on different ways to cook Salmon such as baking/grilling, steaming, Salmon head recipes and others. Today’s recipe is another way of cooking Salmon which is braising and you can substitute Salmon with other types of fish. The fish as well as those tender soft spring onion and ginger are fully absorbed the flavours of the sauce, so delicious.
