Pepsi Sauteed Salmon Recipe

March 23rd, 2015 by Amanda with no comments


Every time we go to Sam’s Club or Costco and they have samples my kids try EVERYTHING!  I love it!   They had a Coca Cola Salmon there and the kids have been begging me to make it!  It was super easy to make and EVERYONE LOVED it!!


1.5 cups Pepsi or Coke (The original recipe called for Coca-Cola, but we only had Pepsi in the house)
1.5 tbs. vinegar
3 salmon fillets
1 tbsp. olive oil

-Combine the Pepsi, vinegar and 1/8 tsp. of salt in a saucepan over medium-high heat and reduce to 1/2 cup. (This took about 30 minutes. I just stirred it occasionally while making the rest of the meal.)

-Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Add Veggies and stir fry about 7 minutes.  Add 1/2 tbsp. of water and a pinch of salt.  Stir fry until all vegetables are tender.  Remove from heat.

-Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper (I used my Wild Tree Rancher Steak Rub).  Heat remaining olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Place the fillets, flesh-side down into the pan.  Saute until first side is golden brown, about 5 to 7 minutes.  Flip over to skin side.  Saute until fish is opaque, but still tender, about 5 additional minutes.  Remove from heat and hold warm.

-Place the pan with vegetables over medium-high heat and toss ot reheat briefly.

-Serve fillets and mixed vegetabls drizzled with glaze.
