Soy-Glazed Salmon on a Cedar Plank

Soy-Glazed Salmon on a Cedar Plank

Ingredients

  1. Soy marinade (recipe follows)
  2. 6 ounces king salmon fillet, deskinned and deboned
  3. Maitake mushroom tempura (recipe folllows), for serving
  4. 2 pieces steamed baby bok choy, for serving
  5. Asian salsa (recipe follows), for serving

Directions

  1. Marinate salmon: Reserve 3 teaspoons of soy marinade; pour the rest over the salmon, coating both sides. Marinate salmon in mixture for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Cook salmon: Preheat oven to 400ºF. Remove salmon from marinade; set marinade aside. Pat salmon lightly with a paper towel, and place salmon on the cedar wood plank. Transfer wood-planked salmon to oven and bake for 15 minutes (for medium-rare), or until desired doneness.
  3. Make reduction: Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, simmer the reserved marinade over medium heat until it has reduced into thickened sauce and coats the back of a spoon.
  4. To plate: Transfer the salmon to a plate, retaining the cedar plank. Flank the fish with tempura, bok choy, and Asian salsa. Drizzle with soy-ginger reduction.

Maitake Mushroom Tempura

Maitake Mushroom Tempura

Notes

Don't overmix the tempura batter, and be sure to mix it just before frying; preparing this ahead of time will result in a heavy batter.

  2. 1 cup flour
  3. 1 egg
  4. Pinch of salt
  5. 3 cups very cold water
  6. 1/4 bunch maitake (hen of the woods) mushrooms, separated into bite-sized pieces

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, heat about 4 inches of oil on medium heat, or until a frying thermometer reads 325ºF.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, egg, salt, and cold water; lightly dip maitake mushroom pieces into batter.
  3. Transfer mushrooms into batter, working in batches and turning occasionally, until mushrooms are golden, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Serve immediately.

Makes 1 serving.
