Salmon Gets A Japanese Twist
Everyone's used to drinking sake, that delicious rice wine, at Japanese restaurants, but what if you used it as a marinade for your salmon fillet? You'd get a delicious piece of fish for dinner.
I love sake. Whenever I go to a Japanese restaurant it's the first thing I order. While I prefer cold sake to hot, the form doesn't matter, I just want to taste that delicious elixir on my tongue. It's a taste unlike any other, a taste that screams Japanese.
Just imagine how thrilled I was when I saw that Nigella Lawson had a recipe for a marinade that was sake based. Now I don't have to go to a Japanese restaurant to enjoy that delicious sake flavor, I can have it right in my own home. And you can too.
If you're worried that you won't be able to find sake anywhere, don't be. These days, sake is sold in practically every supermarket around. You can usually find it in the same aisle as the wines, and you don't need to spend a lot of money either. A $10 bottle of sake will do just fine and there will be enough left over so that you can enjoy a glass with dinner.
The only advice I will give is if you don't know what brand to get, do not get the sake that has a milky white film at the bottom. This tends to be a significanly sweeter sake and won't work well with the salmon.
