The Answer Key
When I tell my ES readers that all will be revealed Monday, I generally mean it, just not this time. So I got a little lazy, sue me. It’s the summer anyways.
Ok, I admit this wasn’t the most revealing mystery food ever. The picture was taken close enough so as to resemble either cat food or wet peanut brittle. The reality? When 80p is cooking, think fish. In this case, salmon.
The picture from last Friday was the precooked version of this recipe. So yes, this is not an ES original, but I know my limits as a chef. I won’t bore you all with the details of the cooking, as I followed the recipe pretty closely. But basically, you slather the fish with mustard and then coat it with crushed coriander seeds, mustard seeds and red pepper flakes. Sear it meat side down for a couple of minutes and then toss in the oven for about 10 minutes. That’s it, nothing fancy.
The taste is a little strange since you think you are eating blackened fish. I kept waiting for the fire in my mouth, never happened. But I do highly recommend this strange coriander and mustard combo.
