One of the things I try to remind my students on a regular basis is that cooking is not Rocket Science, you just need to learn to use what you have on hand to create simple delicious meals.
That’s how I use to do it my restaurants, learning to use the same ingredients in as many different ways is a very efficient and cost-effective way to run a restaurant, and with prices the way they are, the home cook has to be every bit as inventive and creative with the ingredients they can find and that fit into their budget.
Of Course, to break the monotony there should always be times that you think outside the box, purchasing items that you normally wouldn’t, with specific meals planned out using those ingredients. But in everyday business, you look around at what you have and you think about what you’ve seen, eaten or already made and how you can adapt that dish to make it into a meal that people will talk about for days to come.
That’s always the challenge when coming up with your new menu items, and that holds true whether you’re at a restaurant, or at home cooking for your family. So the lesson is, don’t be limited by what should be, instead, think about what could be.
I have seen green tea used in so many different dishes across the blogosphere, as many of my talented friends used this lovely tea in cakes and cookies…..why wouldn’t it work with Salmon? So I decided to create this oh so flavorful matcha green tea salmon recipe.
Some flavors need to stand out just a bit, and balancing all the flavors so you don’t lose them in the process is the goal.
If you like salmon, you’re going love my matcha green tea salmon, trust me on this one. I don’t like salmon and have tried disguising it one way or another for most of my career, hoping that one day I would learn to love it, well it never happened, but when I tasted this salmon, something strange happened……I enjoyed it…..who knew?
