Simple Salmon Fish Head

Click on the picture for clearer view.

This is a very simple to cook dish and is delicious too. I normally don't like the salmon's (too strong) fishy smell. However after cooking it this way, the fish doesn't have any fishy smell at all. Now I can enjoy salmon. Got this recipe from t.v.


Salmon fish head (cut into 4 or 6)
some garlic (whole)
shallots (whole)
ginger (sliced)
chillies (dry or any type of chilli - optional)
coconut milk
Japanese vinegar
lemon juice
salt, pepper and sugar to taste

The number of shallots, garlic and ginger is up to you and also depends on how much fish head you are going to use. Put everything mentioned above in a pot. Add a few table spoon of vinegar. Squeeze some lemon juice (I used 1 whole lemon). Cover everything with coconut milk. Don't need too much coconut milk. Just enough to cover all the ingredients in the pot. Add salt, pepper and sugar. Bring it to a boil. Stir once in a while. Don't have to boil for too long. As long as the fish is cook, you can serve it.

It is nice to eat with rice or noodles or maybe pasta too. You can also just eat it like that. Once it is cook, you can see all the fish oil floating on the surface. We don't need to add oil when we cook. Salmons are pack with good oils. Despite the vinegar and lemon juice, this dish doesn't taste sour at all. Maybe next time I should try cooking it with milk instead of coconut milk. Wonder how it would taste, then.

Have fun cooking and thanks for reading.

Yay! We also cook this at home and it's deliciousss.... We use the same ingredients sans the lemon juice. We just prefer it with less broth. We I let it simmer quite longer until the coconut milk produce a little oil. And sometimes I fry the fish first before I put the coconut milk -- it will take a lot of the fishy smell. Try it sometimes.

You just made me crave for this.
