Salmon Cakes With Spicy Harissa Rémoulade

Slow Roasted Salmon With Shiraz Glaze

My beefy, 20,000 BTU workhorse of an oven is crippled and this is the last meal that it cooked. As last meals, it’s not a bad way to go. This is one of those contradictory dishes that has dramatic, delicious

銀鱈のかば焼き: Black Cod With Kabayaki Sauce

While I enjoy the savory-sweet flavors of うな丼 (unadon) or grilled freshwater eel brushed with かば焼き (kabayaki), that addicting sweet soy sauce-based glaze, eel is off the menu for us. It’s really being overfished cuz young eels at the glass
