Roast in hot oven until crust browns and salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 13-15 minutes." While salmon cooks, prepare the vegetables.

  3. 3

    Fry The Vegetables

    While canola oil heats, add tempura, a pinch of salt and pepper and enough water to make a thick batter to a mixing bowl. like a pancake batter. If too thick, add additional cold water, 1 tsp. at a time, until the consistency is reached. "Line a plate with a paper towel. Pat vegetables dry, and add to bowl with batter. Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of batter to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat. Working in batches, carefully place vegetables in hot oil and cook until golden brown and tender, 2-4 minutes per side. Remove to towel-lined plate and season with a pinch of salt."
