Not Our Usual Salmon

We eat a lot of salmon. It’s my go-to fish, and I buy wild salmon in bulk. I try to switch up the flavors as best I can, sometimes adding lemon juice and dill, other times teriyaki sauce, or I top it with a fruity salsa. However, all these dishes are still quite similar.

A few weeks ago, I received a box of Kikkoman Kara-Age Soy-Ginger Seasoned Coating Mix through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program.

The box states that the mix is for chicken or fish, and I decided to use it with salmon pieces.

The box comes with easy instructions. I followed the instructions on the box, but I didn’t wet the fish, as I wanted only a very light coating. I also used a lot less oil.

The fish turned out great. It had a slight ginger flavor, and it was a nice change from our usual salmon dishes.

I ate a few pieces for lunch with some tomatoes and avocado.

I also used some of the pieces in Asian-flavored burritos. I coated a tortilla with a bit of Wasabi mayo, added the fish pieces, tomatoes, lettuce, a little lemon juice, and avocado. It was a very tasty meal. Unfortunately, it was a crazy evening, and I didn’t take pictures.

Hubby really loved the fish as it “didn’t taste fishy.” That’s really the ultimate compliment for him when it comes to a fish dish! Smile He also suggested using the coating on whole salmon filets next time and making fish burgers, which I think is an excellent idea!

Questions: What’s your favorite fish? I love halibut, salmon, and sea bass. Which fish do you eat the most? We definitely eat salmon the most, at least once per week. What’s your favorite way to eat fish?

Be well,
