Spring Salmon and Sugar Snap Peas

Here is a quick, delicious, salmon recipe that exudes spring time with the addition of sugar snap peas and pea tendrils.  Asian flavors, including lots of fresh grated ginger take salmon to new heights of fantastic.
Have this on the table in about 40 minutes after coming home from work (but only 15 minutes of active time) or serve in the dining room to guests.

Nonstick vegetable spray
1/4 cup Asian sweet chili sauce
3 tablespoons soy sauce, divided
2 tablespoons finely grated peeled fresh ginger, divided
6 6-ounce salmon fillets with skin
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
8 ounces sugar snap peas, trimmed
1 1/2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine or dry Sherry
3 cups pea tendrils or pea sprouts (6 ounces)

Line rimmed baking sheet with foil.  Coat with nonstick spray.  Whisk chili sauce, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon ginger in small bowl.  Place salmon fillets, skin side down, on prepared sheet.  Spoon chili sauce marinade over and let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.  

Preheat broiler.  Spoon any marinade remaining on baking sheet over salmon fillets.  Broil salmon without turning until browned in spots and almost opaque in center, 6 to 10 minutes, depending on thickness of fillet. 

Meanwhile, heat vegetable oil in wok or heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add remaining 1 tablespoon ginger and minced garlic; stir until aromatic, about 30 seconds.  Add sugar snap peas and stir until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes.  Add remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, rice wine, and pea tendrils and stir just until wilted, about 1 minutes.  Drizzle with sesame oil.

Place 1 salmon fillet on each plate.  Spoon warm pea mixture over salmon fillet and serve.

Serves 6

Have a delicious weekend!
