salmon topped with star anise on a bed of asparagus


Last weekend I was in asparagus.  On Saturday the salad with strawberries, on Sunday a self made combination with salmon and star anise.  The idea for the marinated salmon comes from a completely different recipe.

Ingredients (2 persons):

– 2 salmon steaks (about 150g each)

– 10 asparagus

– Cherry tomatoes

– Baked potatoes

– Rosemary

– Star anise

– 20 grams of fresh ginger

– 20 ml of soy sauce

– 20ml oyster sauce

– 10 ml dry sherry or rice wine

– 2 star anise

– A clove of garlic


– Cut the ginger and garlic into fine pieces.

– Mix the soy sauce, oyster sauce and sherry and add the chopped herbs to it.

– Marinate the salmon steaks on all sides with the sauce.

– Pop the star anise in the sauce, cover it and put the salmon marinade for 4-6 hours in the refrigerator.

– Peel the potatoes, cut them into wedges and cook them.

– Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.

– Peel the asparagus and cut its bottom pieces.

– Preheat the oven to 180 ° C.

– Cook the asparagus for 10 minutes.

– Cook the potatoes with rosemary.

– Remove the salmon from the refrigerator, remove the ginger and garlic pieces, put the star anise on the salmon and wrap in aluminum foil.

– Bake the salmon for about 10 minutes in the oven. Then turn the oven off and let cook further in the film.

– Bake the tomatoes with the marinade

– Arrange all the plates and serve.

Since I didn’t work based on a recipe, the quantities are rather an indication. Actually I just messed around a bit, but the result tasted really very well 🙂
