Here is another flash dish that is delightful: it gets done in minutes and vanishes in seconds.
Again, this tatsoi and hoisin salmon stir-fry is one of those dishes that I've made plenty of times and never gone wrong. How could it go wrong?! If you like salmon, if you like your greens just go for it. Midweek, weekends, dinner or lunch, this is a perfect option.
Last time I have made this I've added plenty of sesame seeds both black and white as it adds a lot to the taste with all that nuttiness which perfectly complements this dish.
This tatsoi and salmon stir fry is just perfect! ? ✅
Let me tell you a bit about this tatsoi greens. It is originally an Asian green, available now almost everywhere in Europe and quite popular in North America too. It is super, super loaded with calcium, Vitamin C and carotenoids hence the reasons behind being called a super-food. The beauty of this is that is available all year round.
The salmon should be boneless or cook on bones and remove off the bones when mixing it with the greeneries.
Serving suggestions for this salmon stir-fry
I sometimes mix some balsamic vinegar 1 or 2 tbsp and 1/2 tbsp cider vinegar 1/2 tsp honey with 1/4 freshly grated ginger and one or two cloves of freshly ground/smashed or chopped garlic and sprinkle all over it. It's simply delicious!
Tatsoi can be used anywhere where spinach could go, so feel free to try it and see which one you do prefer most... for me, it is tatsoi as I like its juiciness as well as texture.
