Spice, zest, tart, and sweet — the perfect bite. And with good salmon, it is truly perfection. This sriracha salmon recipe is from Gwyneth Paltrow and is a must make. Although I have had the cookbook for years, I had never made the salmon until this week. And in six days, I made it twice. OOPS. But so good. Make it, trust me.
Yesterday, my schedule was all mixed up. I got cancelled on by my hair dresser, so instead of getting my hair done (trust me, I was super annoyed), I studied calculus, listened to Hamilton Mixtape, and found my new favorite food: Poke bowls from Pokeworks!
Every trip to Paris, I have to stop by Bellota-Bellota, the Spanish meat / fish store right near my in-law’s apartment. While there, I stock up on super delicious (and also super expensive) anchovies and tuna.
Can of fish.
This salmon entree is a crowd pleaser and easy to make. No matter what you do, you really can’t mess it up (unless you really overcook the salmon.) It works well for a couple, a family, or a big group. I even made it for a birthday party with 15 people once (I called all the good grocery stores in town, shopping for the cheapest salmon. No surprise, I found it at Fairway). The simple steps are below:
Ingredients (serves 3 to 4):
I know, I know, I know. WEIRD ingredients. But, *BIG BUT* it works. Works like butta.
* 1 1/2 pounds of salmon
* 1 tablespoon of wasabi paste
* 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise
* 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
Wild salmon is my go-to fish. Check out this vibrant colorful filet! DELISH!
* Spread the wasabi paste over the salmon
