Crispy Bourbon Glazed Salmon

Crispy Bourbon Glazed Salmon
I am always looking for new and exciting ways to eat fish. It has turned out that I’ve made at least one new seafood dish every week for the last month. We love seafood so much and now that the spring is coming, I find myself craving it more and more. If only we lived in an area where fresh seafood was accessible. Pittsburgh… that is not you. I really don’t discriminate when it comes to seafood. It’s my go-to way for preparing salmon. When my mom made that romano crusted fish last week, she also baked some store-bought bourbon glazed salmon that left us all less than impressed. I was thrilled with the results. The recipe makes a good bit so you have leftovers – simply store it in the fridge and use for a glaze or dipping sauce later. It compliments the salmon so perfectly that you can serve it as the main course, in a taco, in a salad (boo!) Bourbon Glazed Salmon makes about 1/2 cup of glaze 1 pound fresh salmon 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt 1/2 tablespoon black pepper 3/4 cup bourbon Related:  comidaSeafoodSeafood

Baked Wonton Tacos When I was a little kid, around every New Year’s, my mom and grandma would sit down and make Mandu {Korean version of potstickers or wontons} all day to make Teokguk {Korean version of wonton soup} and I’d just sit with them trying to help out. I remember trying to help out making my own Mandu, though not really successfully. Then my mom and grandma made their own mandu skins from scratch… And now… how grateful I am that I can get premade mandu skins so easily… although I think I should try and make my own skins sometime… It’s definitely on my to-do list. But until then, these premade wonton skins would do. I’ve been looking for ways to use these little yummies in different kinds of cooking. I’ve always used wonton skins for just wontons… Then I saw that you can use wonton skins for ravioli… So I thought there must be other ways to use the skins, too. When I saw that you can use wonton skins to make little tacos, I immediately experimented with the idea. Baked Wonton Tacos

Salmon Recipies Okonomiyaki recipe on Author Notes: I went to Japan about 10 years ago and while I ate some seriously amazing things, I’d be hard-pressed to remember exactly what they were. That is, except for okonomiyaki, which I first tasted in a cramped corner shop in Kyoto that sold only these delicious savory pancakes. When I came home, my friend Becky – a fellow okonomiyaki nut -- and I tried to replicate the recipe to satisfy our cravings. This is by no means authentic and there are a ton of variations, but it sure hits the spot. - Midge (less)Author Notes: I went to Japan about 10 years ago and while I ate some seriously amazing things, I’d be hard-pressed to remember exactly what they were. Food52 Review: Eggy and crisp, Midge's Kyoto-style pancakes are studded with plump morsels of tender shrimp and threaded through with ribbons of cabbage and rings of scallion. Makes roughly a dozen pancakes depending on their size Sauce 1/2 cup mayonnaise 2 tablespoons soy sauce 2 teaspoons sriracha, more or less to taste

Tom Kha Gai Recipe Tom Kha Gai is a highly popular Thai soup known for its intense and aromatic flavors and its rich and creamy coconut-infused broth. Tom Kha Gai translates as “boiled galangal chicken.” Galangal looks similar to ginger and is related to it, but has a more peppery and pungent flavor. Use galangal for this recipe if you can find it (available at most well-stocked Asian markets) or substitute with ginger. This is a quick and easy soup to make, but there is nothing simple about the deliciously complex flavors. Thai people love their food (and so do we!) I wanted to create a version of this soup that was bursting with flavor, deliciously aromatic, and visually beautiful. *Note: For seafood version (Tom Kha Thale) and vegetarian-friendly, substitute shrimp for the chicken, vegetable broth for chicken broth, and follow the same preparation instructions. P.S. Tom Kha Gai : The Daring Gourmet, Recipe type: Soup Cuisine: Thai Serves: 4 Ingredients Instructions link Like this:

Flamin' Cajun Shrimp recipe on Author Notes: Actually, I think the spicing of these shrimp is a little more Creole, but that doesn't make a slant rhyme with flamin' now does it? Anyways, this is actually a recipe from a college boyfriend of mine. I think I've said it before (I have a terrible habit of repeating myself), but I'll say it again, there is no relationship that doesn't wind up leaving you with something worthwhile, and this dish is certainly one of those things. Food52 Review: Tender and garlicky, fiveandspice's shrimp skew more towards gumbo than other boozy shrimp dishes like scampi or shrimp with beurre blanc.
