Pan Fried Salmon with Shitake Mushroom Sauce
Our Malaysia 13th General Election has just concluded...nothing much to say here...just was not in the mood to blog for the past week..life still carries on and blogging continues...slowly. Thank you very much to those who took part in our Bake Along 2nd Anniversary Cupcake theme last week and thanks for all of your wishes. You can have a look at all of the submissions here.
The selected ingredient for this month's Little Thumbs Up event is Mushroom, hosted by my dear friend, Joyce from Kitchen Flavours. Cook or bake anything using mushroom as one of the ingredients and link it to the above event. What i am posting today is a simple yet tasty dish and doesnt take long to prepare. If you have mirin and sake in the kitchen, why not give this a try. The soy sauce that i used here is the chinese type of light soy sauce and i find it just a little salty, you can choose to reduce a little soy sauce or perhaps add a little sugar at the end or use Japanese soy sauce which is less salty. Happy cooking!
Recipe ( from the book Meet Masa in the Kitchen )
