P.F. Chang's and a top


Here's my new top.  We went out
to eat with our two daughters at
PF Chang's.  Of course, I had to
have the Citrus Soy Salmon again.
I have found the recipe for it now.

Citrus sauce for Salmon
PROCEDURE:
1. Season the Salmon Filet with the Salt (set aside)
2. In a separate bowl, mix cornstarch and water (set aside)
3. In a warm saucepot (low flame) add Ginger & cook for 10 sec.
4. Add Soy Sauce, Mirin and Cornstarch mixture and mix well
5. Bring to a boil and then turn off heat (Do Not Over Boil)
Over Boiling may cause the sauce to turn out to Salty!

FINAL PROCEDURE:
1. Brush pre-heated grill clean (Med. High Flame)

3. Meanwhile, place 2 fluid oz of the Citrus Soy sauce and 2 TB of butter in a Small saucepan on medium heat. Swirl until butter dissolves.(set aside)
4. Mound the cooked rice on the middle of the plate
5. Gently place the grilled Salmon on the rice
6. Drizzle the sauce over the grilled Salmon
7. Mound the Micro Greens on Salmon
8. Drizzle Lemon Olive Oil over the greens and Salmon

Beverage Pairing: We love this dish with Paul Dolan Chardonnay or P.F. Chang's Chinese 88 our twist on the classic French 75.
