Last week I managed to try three new recipes that I had wanted to try for a while, all with excellent results. First, I made Stuffed Salmon with Sriracha Cream Sauce that was from a photo featured on Tastespotting (i.e., my favorite "food porn" site) a few months ago, which linked to a blog post with the recipe that looked too good to pass up. The list of ingredients looked a bit daunting at first, but once I got down to making it it's really not that hard. The sauce is the best part of this recipe, and it is what attracted me to it in the first place. I mean, c'mon, we're talking about Sriracha here! For those not familiar, Sriracha is a hot chili sauce often found in Asian restaurants and is typically available in the ethnic foods aisle of your local supermarket. You can adjust the spiciness of this Sriracha cream sauce by adjusting the amount of Sriracha you mix in. The recipe actually made far more sauce that was needed for two filets of salmon, so next time I might cut that down a bit, but the sauce is really amazing so it's certainly possible to save the sauce for other dishes. I'm thinking it would make a great dip for tortilla chips!
My photo is definitely nowhere near the quality of the one from the original recipe, and I can only hope that someday my pictures will turn out as good as theirs!
