Salmon Chunks in Sweet & Sour Sauce


I love salmon . I like to fry it seasoned with just salt and pepper . But as I want to blog it , taking photos of just a slab of pan-fried salmon seems a little bit boring hee hee  So I dressed it up a little bit . If you're going to wonder what's with 10 grams of ketchup ? why don't she just use a tablespoon to measure it ? Actually I used a packet of ketchup that I got from McDonalds as I have loads of it ^o^" Oh so as the chili sauce , too :P   Salmon's rich in omega-3 fatty acids so it's good for you & me . I sound like a salmon commercial hahaha


about 250 grams salmon steak , bones removed and cut into chunks
1 - 2 celery stalks  , sliced
1 small  yellow bell pepper , sliced
some chopped onion
1 clove garlic , minced
some sugar & a tiny bit of chicken powder
1 1/2 T water

For the sauce :

10 grams ketchup
15 grams chili sauce
1 T rice vinegar
2 T water
1 tsp light soy sauce
1/4 tsp dark soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp tapioca flour or cornstarch

* Mix above ingredients and set aside .
* Season salmon chunks with a little bit salt , ground white pepper and some tapioca starch , mix well .
* Heat a little bit of oil in a pan and pan fry salmon chunks on both sides . Transfer to a plate and keep warm .
* Wipe some oil off the pan and add onion , fry until slightly soften , add garlic , stir fry until fragrant . Add in the celery and bell pepper , fry for few seconds then add water , season with some chicken powder and sugar continue stirring until water evaporates . Pour in the sauce , let mixture thickens ,  immediately add the salmon , mix well to combine . Dish up . Serve with rice .
