Welcoming Spring with Silver Tip Jasmine Salmon


I am sharing today one of my children's favorite dishes.  After experimenting for years different types of "tea cuisine", I made up this recipe.  It is one of my go-to-recipes because of how easily it incorporates tea leaves and how much of a crowd pleaser it is.  I will always have fond memories of making this dish to celebrate important moments with my family.

Ingredients:
2 salmon filet ( 1 1/2 to 2 lbs total)
2T rice wine

Pinch of salt (enough to over surface of fillet)
Preparation Steps
1) Marinate salmon with the above ingredients for at least 15 mins
2) Sprinkle 1T Silver Tip Jasmine loose leaf onto fish 
3) Cover the salmon with aluminum foil to maximize infusion of jasmine into fish and bake at 400F for 10 to 15 mins (pending thickness of fish)
4) Remove aluminum foil and bake at 425F for another 5 to 10 mins (pending how crispy you prefer your fish to be)
