One of the many goodies I receive in the box from Try the World is this Wadakan Ponzu Umami vinegar. It is great for marinading seafood. I wasn't sure how it would taste like with salmon so the first time I used it, I incorporated so,e kahlua beer and mirin together with the umami vinegar to may marinating sauce.
It turned out okay but the mirin was over powering (I think I added too much, lol).
Nevertheless, it was a yummy dinner for us. Grilled salmon was served with vegetable salad and fruits for dessert.
For the second time, I only used the Ponzi Umami vinegar to marinade the salmo. I put some fresh dills on top of the salmon when I was grilling them and it gave it a very fresh aroma.
If you have notice, most of the dishes in this blog always contain rice. Yes, we eat rice almost everyday! I just can't eliminate this carb from my diet. If there's something that you can't eliminate from your diet, what is it?
Here's a little fact from wikipedia about salmon. (Info credit source en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salmon)
The term "salmon" comes from the Latin salmo, which in turn may have originated from salire, meaning "to leap". The nine commercially important species of salmon occur in two genera. The genus Salmo contains the Atlantic salmon, found in the north Atlantic, as well as many species commonly named trout. The genus Oncorhynchus contains eight species which occur naturally only in the north Pacific. As a group, these are known as Pacific salmon. Chinook salmon have been introduced in New Zealand and Patagonia. Coho, Kokanee and Atlantic salmon have been established in Patagonia as well.
