Asian Glazed Salmon
Asian glazed salmon
Now this recipe may seem like an unfamiliar combination of flavours, but let me tell you the sweet and sour style miso glaze is epic and works so well with the salmon, I promise. The pickled watermelon salsa is the perfect sharp contrast to the salmon and it gives such a great balance to the dish. This recipe is perfect for a chilled out dinner party with friends where you just pop down in the middle of the table and enjoy.
