Here’s a dish that is simple (crazy simple!!) to make. And looks super impressive ^_^
It involves four ingredients: salmon, salt, sugar, and tea.
Grind 2 tablespoons lapsang souchong tea (use spice grinder or food processor). Mix with 3 tablespoons salt and 2 tablespoons sugar.
Rub it all over half-pound of salmon. I buy most of my seafood from Lobster Place.
In the ideal world I’d shop at Lobster Place every afternoon and make an awesome fish dish for dinner every night. But until then…
Make sure the top, bottom, and sides are covered. Place skin-side down in a dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Wake up early the next morning, it is time for breakfast!
Gently rinse the salmon under cold running water to remove excess salt/sugar/tea. But you want to keep a tiny bit it on for extra flavor. Plus, it looks better.
Slice thin and serve. We ate it with roasted tomatoes and scrambled eggs ^_^
