I bought a nice, big piece of salmon yesterday at Leclerc’s. It was a difficult decision because they had a beautiful, small piece of Irish salmon also. I asked Jade and she voted for big. It was unanimous.
That’s the thing about salmon; it’s not like getting and eating a big piece of pork (Brian). It’s fish and it’s good for you. Simply cooked, the simpler the better, it is a fantastic meal! Also, it tastes really, really good.
I went for the old 2 tablespoons of tamari soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of mirin, 2 tablespoons of sake marinade, put it in a ziplock bag, squished it around and waited for 30 minutes.
A little fry up in butter and olive oil or grilled. I prefer grilled, but the grill people are not here and the gas bottle adapter needs to be changed to French style. You could also cook this “en papillotte” on a bed of sliced leeks. Next time.
Et voila! Pop it on a bed of mixed greens and pass the baguette and chardonnay. Anytime, anyway!
