Another great season of Top Chef is over. They've packed their knives and gone. This year's finale took place in Singapore and it was exceptional. It was incredible watching these chef's navigate their way through unfamiliar territory. Very impressive. I especially enjoyed the emphasis on fish and the street food of Singapore. It's worth looking up on Hulu if you missed it. Here's a simple and delicious salmon recipe if you're in the mood for fish. Enjoy your weekend!
Salmon Teriyaki - Betsy Eiseman, Lamplighter Family Cookbook
1/2 c soy sauce
1/4 c dry sherry
1/4 c light brown sugar
1 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1T finely grated fresh ginger
1 1/3 lbs salmon steaks, 1"thick
Whisk together soy sauce, sherry, brown sugar, olive oil, garlic and ginger. Pour over salmon and marinate for 30 minutes, turning once to coat evenly. Place oven rack 4 inches from heat source. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with nonstick spray. Remove fish from marinade and place on baking sheet. Broil for 10 to 12 minutes.
Note: This marinade is so tasty! This salmon is great paired with roasted asparagus. For color and added tastiness, top with chopped tomato and grated parmesan.
