Everyone loves seafood, from the health benefits to the flavor, and seafood is one of my favorite things to cook. You can imagine my excitement when the fine folks at SizzleFish.com reached out to me to try their product. SizzleFish sources premium quality seafood and ships individual portions directly to your home. Stocking up and cooking with the fruits of the sea couldn’t be any easier. Now sit back, grab your favorite glass of Chardonnay, and enjoy this post for Sizzlefish Asian Glazed Sockeye Salmon.
Sizzlefish Asian Glazed Sockeye Salmon
The fish coming from SizzleFish is flash frozen and portioned to single serving size. The contents are in a recyclable container with dry ice to keep the contents frozen during shipping.
Inside the box they include small cedar planks perfectly sized for the individual pieces of fish.
Sockeye Salmon is caught in the Alaskan waters and is notable for its bright red color. High in omega-3, this fish is one of the healthiest to eat.
I made a simple Asian glaze using brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, lime, and hoisin. I let the glaze slowly reduced as the salmon cooked on top of the cedar planks.
The Big Green Egg was preheated to 350° and the cedar planks (soaked for 2 hours) were placed on top of the cooking surface.
I placed the sockeye salmon skin side down on the cedar planks and cooked for 20 minutes.
Just before the salmon was cooked through, I brushed on the Asian glaze giving the salmon a beautiful color and delicious flavor.
I’m already looking forward to my next meal choosing from the fine selection of seafood from SizzleFish!
