After the meat overload at Peter Luger’s last week, we were craving a nice simple fish this weekend.
Roasted a salmon steak that I marinated with soy sauce, salt, ginger, garlic, and brown sugar. Bought a loaf of olive bread at Eataly to accompany the meal. Also made rosemary mashed potatoes to add more carbs to our meal. Carbs go very well with cold weather.
My grandma would look down on this dish because Sichuan-ers rarely use soy sauce in their cooking, and NEVER in rice. Soy sauce is more of a northern thing. Beijingers, for example, love their soy sauce. Well, I grew up in Beijing so I guess it is okay for me to make soy sauce fried rice. Had just a bowl of leftover rice (the best kind for making fried rice because it has dried up. If you use fresh rice, you will inevitably end up with a mushier fried rice where the individual rice kernels are rounded at the ends… Do you know what I’m talking about? I notice weird things like that. Anyway!). Scrambled up an egg, added the rice with soy sauce, a little brown sugar, garlic powder, and salt.
