Meena and I picked up a bit of salmon on Saturday afternoon and we put it to good use for dinner later that evening.
Meena whipped up a little salad featuring:
- mixed field greens
- bleu cheese
- red onion
- dressing (canola oil, rice wine vinegar, red wine vinegar, garlic, sea salt, sugar, black pepper)
I got moving on a bit of bbq for the salmon. It featured:
- brown sugar
- sambal oelek
- sesame oil
- sea salt
- soy sauce
- fish sauce
All that was whipped together and generously applied to the salmon that I had grilling on the stove. I finished each fillet off in the oven and let the sugars in that sauce really thicken and adhere to each and every crack in the fish.
In the end ... boy. Boy oh, boy. The fish was just perfect. Perfectly cooked and so full of caramelized, bbq flavor.
Oh, what a night. Oh .... what a night.
