Industry insider knowledge, and usage tips on spices and other ingredients

Recipe: Herby Lemon Salmon

When my mother was still an undergraduate student attending a Japanese university in Tokyo in 1970s, she took a trip by herself to a small island in Okinawa. It was a small island which she could cycle around in one day. When she came back for dinner at a place she was staying, she was shocked to see a bowl of miso soup with bright-colored tropical fish in it. She was not accustomed to seeing tropical fish and the idea of eating them as an ingredient for miso soup was a bit shocking to her. I just remembered this story when I saw bright colored fish in Hong Kong’s wet market. I still am unsure about how to cook some of the fish sold in Hong Kong (I’m more than welcome to learn!) so I tend to reach out for ones I’m more accustomed with, and one of them is salmon. Today I’d like to share herby lemon salmon I cooked last night using Regency’s fisherman’s seafood spices.

Tips: Although I didn’t mention in the cooking instruction, you can also wrap each salmon fillet in an aluminum foil and then transfer to oven for baking. I also baked shredded potato (drizzled with olive oil and salt) with salmon.
