Fire cracker grilled salmon
A blend of sweet and spicy, this salmon dish is a great one to try next time you light up the grill. Since there is sugar in the marinade, make sure to oil your grill grates well, or wrap each fillet loosely in heavy foil and place directly on the grill to prevent sticking.
Ingredients: 4 (4- to 6-ounce) boneless, skinless salmon fillets 1/4 cup peanut oil 2 tablespoons rice vinegar 2 green onions, thinly sliced 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated 1 1/2 teaspoon firmly packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon light sesame oil 1/2 teaspoon crushed red chile flakes, plus more to taste 1 clove garlic, finely chopped 2 whole jalapeño or serrano peppers
Quick question ...Has anyone used confectionery coating in ganache, and been successful? I'd normally not do this, but I have a very dear friend who is allergic to chocolate. Her son is graduating from high school, and she hired me to do chocolates. We'd all like for her to enjoy something from the selections at the reception. The only pieces I can do for her without any chocolate derivatives is of the white chocolate variety. So, white confectionery coating is the only alternative I can find to sub in.
Now, with the actual chocolates, I did a butter ganache with white chocolate, mango puree and coconut. (Tastes amazing, btw.) If I do the same method with the softened butter, glucose; then mix in melted confectionery coating, will it harden up when I add the puree, or stay soft? I tend to think it would be okay, but I absolute hate the idea of wasting that puree. So, thought it best to ask here and see if this a disaster in the making- or a decent alternative...
Thank you for any help and advice you're able to lend. As always, your expertise is very much appreciated!
Some chocolate makers have incredibly intricate chocolate molds that boggle my mind. How do they clean them? Or do they not clean/polish them? Or have an army of interns? Or just do it perfectly every time and polishing molds is for suckers anyway?
They are beautiful, but seem so very impractical. What am I missing?
The Soma is not bad, mostly thin lines, but the Askinosie ...
