I can’t believe it’s been over 25 years since I first tasted this amazing dish at my friend Rooksie’s Shabbos table. As a newlywed I was thrilled to add this to my sure-bet files. Special thanks to Mrs. Erie Gestetner for sharing this recipe (passed down from her Aunt Malchie, a”h).
Sweet and Sour Salmon
- Cook & Prep: 20 m
- Serving: 12
Prepare the Fish
Fill a large pot halfway with water and bring to a boil.
Drop fillets into boiling water and cook for 12 minutes. Turn off flame, but do not remove fish from pot.
Slice red onion and garlic cloves into a roaster pan.
Mix the remaining marinade ingredients together and pour over onion and garlic.
Carefully remove fish slices from water and lay on marinade. Spoon some marinade over each fillet. Cover with foil and refrigerate.
The fish’s flavor intensifies as it sits. I recommend preparing this three days in advance.
