Anything Goes

14 Jun

That’s the title of an old Guns N Roses song from their Appetite For Destruction album. I had the cassette, which I played until death and then bought the CD and ripped it into mp3. But we are not here to talk about music!

Norwegian Salmon from Cold Storage supermarket.

Love love love SALMON!! I love it raw in sushi. Not quite raw on its own like in sashimi. I rather have a bit of rice to go with it. A smear of wasabi and a dash of soy. Yums! And I love it cooked too, like in salmon steaks with just a little lemon butter sauce and a side salad.

So I scored some nice salmon from the supermarket. And I saw a video of Nigella Lawson marinating the salmon in hot English mustard, Wochestershire sauce, soy and sake. Then pan-frying it just for a minute or two on each side. Then wrapping the salmon in aluminum foil and let it continue cooking slowly by residual heat. And served it with rice and a sake/mustard sauce. It looked so good I just had to make it.

Being a Muslim, I can’t consume alcohol, which means no sake. So I did a bit of research and found out that rice vinegar will be a great substitute. I scoured supermarkets and only found rice wine vinegar. That’s no good either. In the end, to hell with it! I just used regular white vinegar. ANYTHING GOES! Haha!

Sake Salmon without the sake


It tasted really good. But I don’t think I like the salmon half-cooked like this. And when I have some leftovers, I sliced up the salmon, pan-fried it all the way through and it made a great salad with some baby butterhead lettuce, homemade croutons, toasted pine nuts. I can’t even remember the dressing. Italian, I think. Or was it ranch? Like I said, ANYTHING GOES!!
