Salmon with DOM

I  have been cooking a lot of salmon recently, guess you have been noticing it too.  Salmon is rich in omega 3 fatty acid and thus a brain booster.  Supposed to be good for your brain.  So, I came out with this recipe with what I had in my refrigerator at that time.  The soup of this dish was really fragrant with the smell of DOM, so good drizzle with rice.  It made a good one dish meal too!


2 pieces of salmon fillets, cut into pieces (marinated with rice wine, salt, white pepper)
2-3 stalks of celery, cut
1 small carrot, cut
1 cup of wood ear fungus, soften
1 Tbsp. of goji berries
1 small pieces of ginger, julienne
3 gloves of garlic, minced 
Salt to taste
White pepper to taste
1 tsp. chicken stock granules
Water to suit
1 Tbsp. Benedictine DOM
Oil for cooking
Cornstarch thickener:  1 Tbsp. cornstarch + 2 Tbsp. water, mix well.


1.  Heat up your wok, when heated add in a little oil.  When the oil is hot, add in the ginger and garlic.  Stir-fry until aromatic, add in celery, carrot and stir fry well.  Add in wood ear fungus and mix well.

2.  Add in water to cover.  When boiling, add in the marinated salmon pieces.  Let the stock cooked the salmon, don't stir it too much.  Season with chicken stock granules, salt and pepper.  Lastly, add in the goji berries.

3.  When the fish is cooked,  add in the Benedictine DOM and cornstarch thickener.  Stir until thicken and turn off the heat and serve hot.

It's cool that you cooked this in a wok! Between the salmon and the fungi, this is pretty darn healthy!

I don't think I've ever had salmon in soup. What a great idea. And I can always use a little brain boost!

A perfect dish for a lazy person like me! And I love the touch of Dom in it.

I have 3 bottles of DOM in my cupboard! This looks healthy and delicious- especially with the use of wood ear fungus as well-the crunch!

Merut, you got to try it. I loved salmon in soup.

Haha busygran. Yeah I know I am a lazy cook too. :P

Wow Daphne, 3 bottles! But DOM keeps forever, longer the better just like brandy. :)

You are so welcome Charmaine, hope you like it.
