This honey-soy salmon is prepared under the broiler, which gives it a blackened char that appeals to our volcano-obsessed preschooler.
Serve with Volcano Noodles, a rainbow salad that includes purplish black rice noodles, for a visually spectacular and delicious dinner. (Prepare the marinade and the dressing for the salad first – they’re similar, and you can prepare the veggies for the salad while the salmon marinates.)
This is one of the most intensely delicious new recipes we’ve tried in a long time. You rub a mixture of honey, butter, and miso paste on the outside of chicken thighs and between the skin and the meat, and then roast the thighs in the oven. This juicy, flavorful chicken has golden crispy skin and is easy enough for a weeknight, but special enough to serve to company.
Shrubs date back to colonial times, when the acidity in the syrup served to preserve the fruit. A good shrub is both tart and sweet, stimulating the appetite while quenching thirst.
Substitute seltzer water for the bourbon for a refreshing, non-alcoholic beverage. The blackberry shrub syrup base in this recipe makes a double batch.
