Back to cooking and food adventures this week! I am not a big fan of cooked salmon, so it is a pretty big deal for me to admit when I do enjoy it. It all went down last week in Montauk. The salmon was the perfect combination of salty from the miso glaze and sour from the apples placed atop. It was also cooked perfectly. Upon arriving home, I attempted to make the same dish using Gwyneth Paltrow’s Broiled Salmon with Homemade Teriyaki recipe. For a first try at cooking salmon, I did okay. However, I let the salmon broil for a few minutes too long, and boiled the marinade a few minutes too long as well (making “teriyaki candy” according to Scott). Overall, the fish tasted okay, leaving me still on a mission to recreate this awesome dish at home (and satisfy me until our next trip to Navy Beach).
Some notes on GP’s recipe
- Since Scott and I shared one piece of fish at the restaurant, I used two 4 ounce pieces of salmon at home
- For the marinade, I halved the recipe and marinated the fish for an hour
- I broiled the fish on a baking rack placed atop the baking sheet and probably with smaller pieces, only needs about 5 minutes in the oven
- I had the fishmonger take the skin off the fish to help in at-home preparations
- For apple slices, I used Granny Smith and Fuji
