Method of Preparation
For the salmon: place fish into large, chilled bowl Combine soy sauce, maple sugar, ginger, and pour mixture over fish fillets, coating evenly. Place fish fillets on baking sheet, skin side down. Pre-heat broiler on high. Broil fish for 4-5 minutes until golden brown and fully cooked.
For the Pancit: Place the soybean oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add onion, carrots, and celery and sauté until partly tender, add cabbage and continue to sauté until vegetables are tender and lightly golden brown. Place sauteed vegetables in large bowl and reserve.
Add sausage to pan and sauté over medium heat until golden brown (3-4 minutes). Add minced garlic and carefully sauté until golden brown. Add soaked noodles to pan with sausage and garlic and continue to cook. Add soy sauce, oyster sauce, and chicken stock to vegetable mixture and toss. Cook gently until noodles are tender. Return vegetables to large sauté pan and toss with noodles. Cook until entire mixture is warm. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
To serve: Place 3-4 ounces of Pancit onto each dinner plate. Top with a portion of salmon and garnish with sliced scallions and sesame seeds. Enjoy.
Note: though pork and chicken are the traditional proteins used in this dish, Chilean Salmon offers a wonderful and healthy twist. Serve with your favorite vegetable if you like (we used steamed broccoli rabe). The result is savory, unique, and delicious – your family will love it.
