Not Your Average Salmon
No, that's not barbecue sauce you're seeing on the salmon. It's something much better. This is a loose adaptation of Korean salmon bulgogi. I got the idea from Closet Cooking's website, but I didn't have all the ingredients. So, I decided to change it up a little. The result was a spicy salmon that made my mouth sing. If you're tired of the everyday salmon recipes, I suggest you give this one a try.
1/2 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. gochujang (Korean red chili paste)
1/4 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 Tbsp. mirin
Combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a pot and add the salmon fillets. Boil for 30 min. or so until the salmon is cooked through.
Note: You may want to add more sugar if you wish or a little water if it's too salty for your taste. You can also double the sauce as needed depending on how much fish you're cooking.
