Grilled Salmon with Indonesian Ketchup Sauce


Kecep manis is a thick, sweet Indonesain soy sauce that star chef Gray Kunz blends with ketchup to make a wonderful sauce for fish and grilled chicken or shrimp. It's available at Asian markets. The sauce should be brushed on after cooking or it will burn.

  1. 1/2 cup ketchup
  2. 2 tablespoons kecep manis or double soy sauce
  3. 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  4. 2 tablespoons honey mustard
  5. 2 teaspoons curry powder
  6. 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  7. 1 teaspoon Tabasco
  8. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  9. Four 6-ounce skinless salmon fillets
  10. 1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  1. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, kecep manis, vinegar, mustard, curry powder, cumin, Tabasco and salt. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Light a grill or heat a grill pan. Grill the salmon over a medium-hot fire for about 6 minutes per side, or until browned and crisp on the outside but still slightly rare inside. Stir the cilantro into the ketchup sauce and generously brush about half of the sauce on the cooked salmon. Heat the remaining sauce just until bubbling. Transfer the salmon to plates and serve; pass the remaining sauce alongside or refrigerate for another use.
Make Ahead The prepared sauce can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.
