Salmon is always a treat. It’s so different from every other fish and doesn’t quite match up to any mammalian meat either. I would like to think that the texture, flavor, and essence of salmon is practically in it’s own category.
With this personal category that salmon holds brings so many new possibilities. It can pair with lemon, honey, balsamic vinegar, miso, ginger, dijon mustard, pesto, and the list goes on. It is such a versatile cut of meat, and with that versatility brings such a beautiful array of culinary creativity.
I chose to divulge into a cooking style that I normally haven’t done, that is, cooking in a foil packet. I’ve heard that it can bring simplicity to the kitchen, so I figured it would fit ever so well into my Quik Fit concept.
This sweet balsamic salmon was surely a great fit for my developing cookbook, and I couldn’t help but share. Please try out this tasty seafood treat this weekend and let me know how it goes. You need to experience the power behind this recipe in its simplicity, ease, and amazing flavors.
