  • 1/2 bunch of cilantro
  • 1 piece cinnamon stick
  • 5 ml fennel seeds
  • 3 ml sambal
  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 3 ml baking powder
  • 250 ml milk
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 80 grams melted butter


  • Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Combine all the dry ingredients for the corn bread first.
  • Beat the eggs on a separate bowl, add milk and melted butter.
  • Combine wet ingredients with dry ones, and bake it on two parchment paper-lined baking sheets and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the marinade, and pour in a zip-log bag with the salmon and marinate for 1 hour.

  • Present your perfectly cooked salmon on a bed of spring greens, warm cornbread and dress with room temperature Tangerine Mojo.
  • Buon Appetito



Chef Notes: This is a tasty recipe with the wonderful flavors of the salmon and the sweetness and spiciness of the Mojo marinade. This recipe with the cornbread is a wonderful way to cook them on BBQ and back the cornbread on a cast-iron skillet. 
Juice Pairing: Ginger Spice Juice
