This fish dish is a true summer recipe. The peach gives the fish a fresh and juicy taste the ginger adds an Asian twist to the recipe. The ideal plate for a hot summer night.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

difficulty: easy


  • a filet of salmon
  • 2 peaches
  • a small onion
  • 3 cm of ginger peeled
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • some butter
  • a sip of white wine
  • salt and pepper


Heat the butter in a pan. Fry the salmon on both sides on high heat. Meanwhile chop the onions. Peel and cube the peaches as well as the ginger and the garlic. The peach cubes can be large.

Add the onions to the fish. After about 5 min fying time remove the fish from the pan and wrap it into tin foil. The frying time of the fish depends on how thick the fillet is. Do not cook the fish too much as it also cooks in the foil.

Add the peach cubes to the frying pan. Add the ginger and the garlic after a minute or two. Fry them just a bit, then add the white wine. A sip is enough. Reduce the liquid, season with salt and pepper.

Return the fish to the pan and let it sit there with for a minute. Cover the fillet with sauce.

Place the fish on a plate and drizzle the sauce over it.
