squeee! (by lj-user sandradelete)
Today, when I got up, I threw a frozen salmon steak in the fridge. I added teriyaki sauce once the salmon was pliable, and let it marinate it all afternoon. Just cooked it up now, threw it over rice with a bit of extra teriyaki and hot damn-- I can cook!

I know, it's a majorly simple recipe. However, it honestly still surprises me when I try a recipe I haven't done before and wind up with something that actually tastes damn good.
  • Once upon a time, I lived in an apartment for a year before my sister discovered that the oven didn't work. The extent of my culinary adventures involved frozen dinners and the microwave. I have come a long way, but I still get a kick out of cooking successfully.

    Here's another trick for you:
    If you have any of that salmon left over (tuna also works well), stash it in the fridge. Tomorrow at lunch time, add a dollop of mayo, smush it up with a fork, and spread on bread. Presto, delicious seasoned salmon (or tuna) salad sandwich. When I cook something ike this, I make extra just for the leftovers.
  • good marinade is teriyaki/ginger and a shot of jack daniels.. oh god...so good,remember i'm one of that breed known as a chef,but the simple stuff really is the most tasty, most times(plus its fun to play with ingredients)
    • this was, indeed, Yoshida's premade garlic/ginger Teriyaki. Delicious stuff.
