AN EASY SALMON RECIPE LOADED WITH ASIAN FLAVOR
Salmon is a great choice when it comes to making dinner at home. Not only is it fairly simple to cook, it tastes magnificent – and looks pretty fancy when it hits the dinner plate.
And a huge bonus is that it absorbs flavors super well, making it the perfect protein to season just the way you like.
These tender salmon filets are prepared with an Asian inspired sauce that manages to achieve major flavor without too many trips to the pantry.
Miso paste delivers an earthy, savory element that is complemented by the umami from soy sauce. Rice vinegar and sugar lends a touch of bright sweetness to the mix. And peeled and sliced fresh ginger imposes a slow burn without becoming volcanic in the process.
The chopped leeks simmer alongside the salmon and pick up the nuanced flavors of both the fish and sauce. Trust us… you’ll be spooning the leeks on top of your rice with abandon!
And the only thing better than the flavor of this ginger salmon recipe is how easy it is to prepare from start to finish in your rice cooker.
