Everyone knows that millenials love pink everywhere – even in their food – but does that extend to fish? Salmon has a very distinctive color that is a mix of pink and orange, which even has its own color name.
While everyone knows salmon for its color and name, a surprisingly few number of people have cooked salmon, or any other type of fish, before. This video recipe demonstrates a simple and easy method of cooking salmon that doesn’t even require a pan, leaving no messy dishes behind.
The flavor profile in this recipe calls for the sweetness of honey and the tartness and spiciness of mustard to enhance and complement the salmon’s flavors. Using actual honey and mustard instead of honey mustard will give you much more flavor as each ingredient is allowed to shine. This also allows for greater control over the proportions of your ingredients.
If you’re not a fan of paprika, why bother adding it? Do you want a little more sweetness in your dish? Add more honey! Just taste the dressing before placing it on the salmon, and adjust to your tastes. This will help you not only with this recipe, but every time you cook. So don’t be afraid, give it a taste!
