Salmon with Soy, Honey and Lime Sauce Becomes Sushi

Regular readers know that we love this sweet and savory grilled salmon dish that we feature in the Gastrokid Cookbook.

This past weekend I made the dish again with a bit of a surprise (for the chef at least). When I served up the salmon, marinated in mirin, soy and rice wine vinegar then grilled along with the rice and honey-lime drizzling sauce, my son Dylan took a taste and said:

“Can I make sushi with this?”

By which he meant he wanted to roll the rice and salmon in a small sheet of Nori (dried seaweed) that we keep for snacks.

What to say? “How dare you embellish my well thought out recipe!” or “Sure, why not, it might be tasty.”

I chose the latter and both Dylan and Zelda devoured the meal.

You just can’t stand in the way of progress.

    Just had to let you know that I got your cookbook for Christmas and have had several sucesses, including last night’s Japonaise Chicken Nuggets and High Heat Broccoli. My very picky 5-year old son, who normally complains anytime dinner is not pizza or mac-n-cheese, gobbled it up and told me it was a yummy dinner. I almost cried! We’ll have to try this salmon recipe next . . .
