Instructions
  1. Preheat oven at 175 degrees celsius.

  4. Place orange juice, chinese five spice, lime juice and coconut amino seasoning in a small bowl or mug and mix well - set aside.
  5. Preparing the Salmon
  6. Rub salt onto the top and bottom sides of the salmon steaks (1/2 teaspoon of ground salt for each steak OR 1teaspoon of coarsely ground salt for each steak).
  7. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a large frypan.
  8. Add salmon steaks and pan fry on both sides, making sure that you do not overcook the salmon - you should remove it when it is slightly undercooked (ie. still a little raw in the middle if you look at the salmon side on).
  9. Place salmon steaks aside.
  10. Preparing the Glaze
  11. Place frypan on stove on medium heat and heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  12. When oil is heated, add ginger, ginger and chilli seeds and stir continuously for one minute - making sure the garlic & ginger do not burn.
  13. Pour in orange juice mixture and add star anise and stir until starts to boil then reduce heat.
  14. Allow to simmer until the sauce reduces (by about a third) into a nice glaze consistency.
  15. Remove frypan from heat and add one salmon steak to the pan. Turn the salmon steak over in the sauce until coated on both sides.
  16. Place salmon steak onto a baking tray covered in aluminium foil.
  17. Repeat for each salmon steak.
  18. Using a pastry brush (or a spoon), brush the remaining sauce over each of the salmon steaks.
  19. Add the star anise to the baking tray and place in oven for 10 minutes.
  20. Whilst salmon is in oven, toss the slaw dressing through the salad.
  21. Remove salmon steaks from oven and serve on beds of asian slaw dressing.
  22. Garnish with coriander leaves.
