Ingredients

How to make it

  • Steep the tea in the boiling water for 10 minutes.
  • Strain half of the tea leaves into a marinating container of some sort (with lid is great) and place the salmon pieces on top of the tea leaves.
  • Strain the other half of the tea leaves on top of the salmon pieces.
  • Spoon about 6 tbsps. of the steeped tea into the marinating container and cover.
  • Marinate in the fridge for about 6 hours, turning the salmon pieces once or twice.
  • The salmon can then be seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled, broiled or pan fried. A 6-ounce salmon fillet takes approximately 3 minutes per side to cook; a steak takes less than that, so watch carefully and don't overcook. It is cooked when it is no longer transparent in the middle.
  • Serve with fresh lemon wedges. Anything else would mask the subtle flavour of the tea.
