Big Green Egg Spicy Korean Salmon
Take the salmon filets out as you make the glaze using Gochujang, Honey, Ginger, Garlic, Rice Vinegar, Soy Sauce, White Miso and Sesame Oil.
We made a side of sautéed Shiitake Mushrooms. I used Garlic, Soy, and Mirin to cook the mushrooms in.
The trick to cooking with a Himalaya Salt Block is to put it on the grill as the grill warms up. Controlling the airflow in the Big Green Egg allowed me to warm the grill up slowly until I reached the desired temperature of 350°.
Now that both the BGE and Himalayan Salt Block are preheated it is time to glaze the top of the salmon and place the filets on the Salt Block.
Cook the salmon for 5 minutes and then flip to the other side. Now that you have flipped the filets, glaze the other side of the salmon and cook for another 5 minutes or until the internal temp reaches 120° using an Instant Read Thermometer.
We served the Salmon on top of White Rice with the sautéed Shiitake Mushrooms. Enjoy!
