Ok, you have to make this (unless you don't like salmon, then just move along). It was AMAZING! Seriously...restaurant quality dinner right there. This was such a great find!
I came across it over at Cooking Light and thought, 'Eh...looks good. We haven't had salmon in forever, so why not'. WOW...this was definitely a surprise!
I took a bunch of pictures of the fillet as whole, but then decided to fork a piece off so you could see the inside of the salmon. I initially wanted the fork in the background with the salmon piece on it, but it kept falling off, so I just ate it...I swear, I took the rest of the pictures in about 3.7 seconds. I couldn't wait to eat the rest!
It is a spicy dinner, but even still, I inhaled it. I kept a glass of water on hand to drink between bites. It was definitely more spicy than what I like (which is NO spice), but it wasn't crazy obnoxious. Most people would probably think it was the perfect amount of heat. Heath absolutely loved it. I can't wait to make it again.
Oh and if you're wondering what 'Chili Sauce with Garlic' is, it looks like this...
...I found it at the commissary in the aisle with Chinese/Japanese sauces and toppings. If they carry it at the commissary, then you'll definitely be able to find it at regular grocery stores.
Another great thing? It only takes 7 minutes to make! That's it!!
This is definitely my new 'Impress-the-company' dinner (as long as they like fish).
Ok guys, I'm off to tweak the new blog and get some posts written. I finally got the domain working last night, so I'm making progress! Have a great day...a make some salmon!!!
