Sweet and Sour Tasmanian Salmon Recipe

The Tasmanian salmon are always available fresh on most supermarkets here in Australia. It did not take a lot of thinking on what is the best Pinoy dish that I would cook with the fish beside sinigang na salmon. I thought they will make a great sweet and sour and it is. For the dish I needed salmon fillets skin-on, the reason I chose the fillet with skin-on, I wanted to fry the skin crispy and maintaining the rest of the salmon fillet just cooked tender and moist, remember they are fresh. The sweet and sour sauce is simple just a cocktail of stir fried chopped vegetables like tomatoes, onion, celery, bell pepper and cucumber. Of course the vegetable are not limited to those I have used you can use your own favourite sweet and sour vegetables, you can even use commercially prepared sweet and sour sauce.
