Orange and Shiso Salmon
I was perusing the internet for a recipe that had salmon and shiso in it. I only found one and although it looked good it was too fussy for what I wanted to do. So, I used the ingredients that it called for but used a different amount and method of cooking. The original recipe is here. I will give you my recipe which is easier.
I started off by chiffonading the shiso. It looked really cool after I did that. Sort of like Fiddleheads.
Whirred it all up in my bullet (oh, wait till you see the bullet like machine I bought at the H Mart today. It is really cool looking and it was on sale for 25.00).
Spread the goo on the salmon and grill.
Voila! Weeknight dinner.

1. Mix everything but the salmon in a food processor or bullet.

So it was good but I dunno if I would make it again.
