Salmon with 5 spice powder and Sauteed Green Beans

Bold 5 spice flavors in this one….and it’s super yummy!

1 pack (1 lb, 4 or 5 individually-wrapped) frozen skinless salmon fillets
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 tablespoon Chinese 5-spice powder

Green Beans:
1 lb fresh green beans, washed and ends discarded
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste
juice of calamansi (native lemon), or juice of half lemon

Remove plastic wraps and place salmon fillets on a square pyrex dish; set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together the rest of the ingredients and pour over the salmon fillets.    Turn  to coat fillets with marinade.  Cover with a plastic wrap and leave to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Bake in preheated 400 F oven, uncovered, for 15 minutes (flip the fillets after 5 minutes baking time) or until salmon flakes easily with a fork and is a lighter pink in color.

Meanwhile, saute green beans in sesame and vegetable oil until just cooked (still crispy).  Season with salt and pepper and a drizzle of calamansi juice.

Transfer cooked fillets to individual serving plates.  Serve with sauteed green beans and cooked white rice.
