Tamari and Honey Glazed Salmon and Simple Rice Pilaf
Fortunate me – my sons went fishing in Alaska and introduced again some wonderful King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon and Halibut and my freezer is stocked with fish! I am particularly glad as a result of I not often purchase King Salmon as it’s so costly and I adore it. I am sharing an Asian glaze that I exploit to bake and/or broil Salmon (any variety) and it simply highlights the Salmon so effectively. I bake it in aluminum foil in order that the flesh of the fish soaks up a few of the sauce first after which open up the packet, flip the Salmon over and brush it with a bit extra glaze and broil it to get a caramelized high. You possibly can after all skip this step and make it simpler for your self by placing the Salmon within the foil pores and skin facet down and opening up the packet to finsih it by broiling it The thicker the piece of Salmon, the longer it’s important to prepare dinner it. After I serve it, I sprinkle the Salmon with Sesame Seeds. I like to serve this preparation of Salmon with Rice Pilaf, which cooks in about the identical period of time because the Salmon and a inexperienced vegetable, normally steamed. For me, it is a type of excellent dinners!
