I religiously read 20 or 30 reviews to get a very good sense until they start to repeat themselves and I've exhausted most of the really good suggestions. I have always disliked fish. I'll eat sushi but in limited quantity (the non-fishy tasting stuff)--don't like that fishy taste/smell. In an effort to be healthier, I am trying to fix healthier meals and cut back on chicken and meat, I am doing my best to find good fish recipes here. This Firecracker Salmon was fantastic. It will be a regular dish. A friend suggested that sockeye is a great non-fishy salmon. I went looking at Costco and found they have a great wild caught, skin on, flash frozen sockeye bag that are each individually wrapped. I only substituted dark soy for regular soy and doubled the marinade for two filets. I like my spice so I was very heavy handed with both the cayenne and the red pepper flakes. All else followed to a tee. I reduced down the extra marinade to supplement the meal. My fiance suggested we BBQ the salmon filets on a cedar plank. Great idea! He raved as did I over this recipe! Never thought I'd say I love salmon. Thanks very much to Christine L for helping me find a salmon that I love. For you others in my same boat, check out Chef John's Pan-Roasted Halibut with Clamshell Mushrooms and Lemon Butter Sauce. You can sub the expensive Clamshell Mushrooms for Criminis for the same effect. It is a fantastic NON-FISHY dish with fantastic flavor and another stable in our house now.
