Amazing Salmon; Grill out tonight
During the dog days of summer, the last thing you want is to do anything that heats your home. This is, of course, a great excuse for not cooking, but if you’re trying to watch your budget then eating out isn’t the best solution. Grill out instead. Try any one of these three recipes from Positively Green for a scrumptious dinner that gives your kitchen and your AC a break.
Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Shiitake
45ml/1/4 cup plus 15ml/1 tablespoon sake
45ml/2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
15g/2 1/2 teaspoons light brown sugar
10ml/2 teaspoons Asian sesame oil
15ml/1 tablespoon canola oil
225g/3/4 pound shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and caps thickly sliced
Four 170g/6-ounce skinless salmon fillets (line caught)
1 tablespoon snipped chives
1. Preheat a grill until smoking. In a small bowl, whisk the sake with the soy sauce, brown sugar and sesame oil. In
another bowl toss the shitake with 2 tablespoons of the soy-sake mixture and season with salt and pepper. Put the shiitakes on the grill and grill over high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly browned in spots and tender. Transfer the mushrooms to a plate.
2. While the shitakes are grilling, place the salmon on a
platter and spoon 3-4 tablespoons of the soy-sake mixture over the fillets. Grill over high heat, turning once, until lightly charred. As you grill, drizzle a bit more of the soy-sake mixture over the salmon to slightly glaze. Grill about 2 minutes on each side.
