So, this recipe? Kind of a fail. Not a HUGE fail, like this or this… or this, but a fail nonetheless. Part of the problem, I think, was the marinade.
You see, I was sort of following a recipe and it called for marinating salmon in teriyaki sauce with extra ginger and scallions. I was happy because I wanted to finish up the teriyaki sauce we had since it had some ingredients I wasn’t crazy about.
So, I threw the salmon on a dish and covered it with teriyaki marinade, some grated ginger, and some scallion-ish things.
Then, since I didn’t read the directions, I cooked it just like that. I baked it. In the oven. With all the sauce.
Then, I read the directions and found out that the marinade was supposed to turn into the sauce. Oops. Lesson learned? Read the recipe and retain it before you begin.
So, I had to use more of the teriyaki sauce to make the sauce itself. I added ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, scallions, and some garlic to the teriyaki and brought it to a simmer.
Next, the yummy step! I shredded up some cabbage and carrots and added it to the sauce with peas!
Yayyyy!!!!!!! Hahaha, sorry I was just excited about something working! Anyway, that deliciousness got mixed together with some macaroni.
Ehh. It was okay. The sauce was too thin even after I thickened it up with some corn starch.
