Are you ready for the easiest recipe in the world?
(I’m a little embarrassed to even call this a recipe)
1) Buy a big filet of salmon at Costco or your local grocery store – I prefer fresh and farm-raised. (You can go on all the live-long day about the benefits of wild salmon – my sister has – but it’s too fishy for me, and I prefer farm-raised. But if you don’t mind a stronger flavor, go with wild and save yourself from all the maladies my sister describes.
2) Take it out of the packaging and give it a rinse under the faucet. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
3) Line a cookie pan (or a sheet, but make sure it has sides) with foil. Curl up the edges on the sides to keep all the liquid in. Save yourself from really scrubbing the cookie sheet, or if you like a good scrub, you can skip this step altogether. It may really mess with your pan though.
4) Place salmon in pan, and pour this sauce over: Just make sure the fish has a good bath in this perfect sauce, it doesn’t matter how much.
This is Soyaki sauce from Trader Joe’s. Buy like 12 bottles at a time for reasons I’ll share later.
If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s (my sincere apologies), use this sauce, which I *think* tastes exactly the same:
5) Place in oven warmed to 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Start working on your veggie (I usually have green beans. I don’t know why, but I do).
6) Turn heat up to broil for 2-3 minutes. I usually take it out to check the thickest part to make sure it’s cooked through. If you smell smoke, it is the sauce burning, not the fish, but check it anyway!
Serve with a veggie and rice or roast potatoes if you are fancy like that.
Remember the miracle sauce? I also use it on: meatballs, chicken and flank steak (marinade for 12-24 hours). In fact I think I use a bottle or so every time I entertain. And that’s why I need 12 bottles down in storage. I start to panic if I’m down to 3.
