So, it’s weird to talk about the deficit of something and then go in to a recipe about it. I do not like salmon. I referenced several sources to find the perfect adjective to describe it’s taste. My fidnings; the color orange is supposed to mean something to our palate. So, here’s mine; grassy-fishy-density (GFD)- density for added emphasis.
Thankfully, my kids enjoy salmon and there are numerous health benefits – so let’s make it work for me too. I have made miso fish in the past, but it’s not enough to mitigate GFD. This miso salmon has a hit of horseradish and some ginger and the way it works salmons flesh as well as my airways, it seems to do the trick. The salmon has a liberal marinade that bubbles, caramelizes and chars over the top; a little sweet, a little savory and a whole lot umami.
This dish is creating a bit of an access point for Salmon and I. There a are signs of a careful but encouraging future together so watch this space for more recipes
