I can remember my mother making the most amazing salmon cakes I’ve ever had in my life (Let me tell you, that woman can cook *smiles*). But believe it or not, that was my only experience with salmon. I had never, up until a couple of years ago, had a salmon fillet. Why? I have no clue. I just never got around to it. But when I did… I fell in love all over again. And now it’s one of the things I take out of my fridge, besides salad, when I want something quick and easy.
I simply love the Asian influence in this recipe, but I did leave out the red chilli and the steamed rice. I’ve never been a huge rice eater, and if I do eat it… it’s usually brown rice. So instead of white rice, I placed the salmon on top of rice noodles. This dish was so easy and packed with flavor.
Have you ever gone fishing? Well my first fishing trip, over a decade ago, was… interesting to say the least (laughs). Since my family loves to go fishing, I decided one day that I was going to go too. I mean, how hard could it be. Until I found out there was live bait involved (worms to be exact), and I had to put those nasty things on the line, and cast it out to get a fish. Yeah at 12 years of age, I was not doing that (laughs).
