Salmon con Hogao (Salmon with Colombian-Creole Sauce)

Salmon con Hogao

Hogao” is a traditional Colombian creole sauce made with tomatoes, scallions, garlic, cumin and cilantro. I love this sauce and I am oddly tempted to dump it over everything I cook, from soups, fish, meat or poultry, to a bowl of plain steamy white rice with fried egg 😉

Last week I made this fish dish for lunch and the flavors are incredible. The salmon is soft, the hogao sauce is rich, and together it melts in your mouth in perfect harmony.

Buen provecho!

  • 2 (6 oz) salmon fillets

    Hogao sauce is a perfect match with your salmon, Erica. Makes for a lovely presentation too. Really like the flavors in the sauce…not too strong or spicy, just right.
