Orange and Shiso Salmon

IMG_2925

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).

  3. I adore shiso leaves. I only know them as a sushi roll paired with plum paste, but I can imagine they add wonderful flavor here. Complimenti!

  4. I have one of those little bullet machines, too! They're such a lifesaver when I don't want to bother with the blender.

  5. Shiso, aka kkaenip, aka beefsteak leaves are easy to grow. http://rareseeds.com/ sells them.
