#SundaySupper: Baked Salmon with Cucumber Salad

It seems like yesterday when it happened. Chaos. Disaster. Panic. It was 1997 when the worst flood hit us, our family. The flood inundated about 70 percent of the city, killed at least 57 people and sent about 450,000 fleeing their homes. For me who was still in school, it was holidays. Fortunately, we resided in the suburb; hence we did not have to worry, other than we’re trapped and had to stay home. But to some, especially my relatives who lived 3 miles away, it was a chaotic moment. No power, no water, and no internet.

This week, we’re putting our heads together to show our support to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. It’s one of our ways to reach out and share through a tough time, saying they are not forgotten and we’re thinking of them. We bake, we cook and we do the best we can to comfort, be it with food, words or deeds and most times, with all three. So, today I’m virtually serving up my favorite comfort foods, fresh and easy to friends in need.

Baked Salmon with Cucumber Salad


Baked Salmon

  • 1 tbs honey
  • 2 tsp light soy sauce
  • 4-5 oz. skinless center-cut salmon fillet
  • Sea salt
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • ½ tsp corn starch

Cucumber Salad

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1½ cup fresh corn kernels (from 3 ears corn)
  • 1 chopped cucumber
  • ½ cup chopped parsley
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • Pepper


  1. For baked salmon: Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Mix the honey, soy sauce, corn starch in a pot over low heat and let is simmer for 1 minute.
  3. Rub the fish fillet all over with sesame oil and season lightly with salt. Bake for 5 minutes, remove and brush with honey-soy sauce marinade.
  4. Return the fish to the oven and continue baking for about 7-10 minutes.
  5. For cucumber salad: Heat 1 tbs olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the corn and cook, stirring occasionally until it begins to char, about 2 minutes.
  6. Add the tomatoes and cook until they just begin to wilt, about 2 mins. Transfer to a bowl, add cucumber and remaining ingredients. Let stand for 10 mins in the fridge before serving.

This Sunday Supper is dedicated to help those impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Hurricane Sandy has brought unthinkable devastation to parts of our Garden State, destroying homes, businesses and some of New Jersey’s most identifiable icons. The Governor have organized this relief fund to aide, comfort, and rebuild New Jersey. The images and stories of the damage are heartbreaking. In the aftermath, we urge you to support our friends, neighbors and communities impacted by the storm. They need our help and need it quickly. Thank you for your generosity. We are strong and resilient. We are proud New Jerseyans. —First Lady Mary Pat Christie
