Mad About Matcha: Salmon in Coconut-Matcha Broth

There’s something in the air … Can you feel it? No, it’s not spring fever. It’s matcha fever. Here we’ll share tasty, fun ways to put this hot ingredient to cool use.

Salmon in Coconut-Matcha Broth

Though we often think of matcha in sweet recipes, it can also be delicious in savory applications. Here, it lends depth to a broth made with coconut milk, lemongrass, and shallots.

1  lemongrass stalk, trimmed 2  medium shallots, quartered 1  (1-inch) piece ginger, peeled and cut into thin slices 1/2  cup unsalted chicken stock (such as Swanson) 1  (13.5-ounce) can light coconut milk 1  tablespoon matcha powder 1  tablespoon fresh lime juice 3/4  teaspoon kosher salt, divided 4  (6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets 1/4  teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1  tablespoon canola oil

1. Cut lemongrass in half lengthwise; crush lemongrass halves with flat side of a chef’s knife.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot quarters to pan; cook 5 minutes or until charred, turning occasionally. Reserve 2 shallot quarters. Add lemongrass and ginger to pan with remaining shallot quarters; cook 1 minute. Add stock and coconut milk; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, until liquid reduces to about 1 cup. Strain liquid through a sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Return liquid to pan. Add matcha, lime juice, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Keep warm.

3. Sprinkle salmon with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add salmon to pan; cook 4 minutes. Turn salmon over; cook 2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Thinly slice reserved shallot quarters. Spoon about 1/4 cup broth into each of 4 shallow bowls; arrange 1 fillet in each bowl. Divide shallot slices among bowls.
